Special Issue "Novel and Green Processing Technology Applied in Dairy Products"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 May 2021.
Interests: antimicrobials; chemical engineering; dairy; food science
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Processes: Recently Advance in Polymer Antibacterial Films
Interests: dairy and meat science; membrane technologies; valorization of food processing byproducts and food security
This Special Issue aims to highlight the current advances in the application of green processing technologies to the dairy industry. The growing concern for the environment, the increasingly stringent standards regarding environment protection, and economic competitiveness have led to more environmentally friendly approaches that have resulted in pollution prevention and efficiency maximization. The development of new technologies in the food industry envisaging the reduction of environmental impacts and energy consumption is of particular interest to academics and to food industry professionals. The new technologies must also maintain or improve food quality attributes such as nutrient content and sensory quality. In the Special Issue, particular attention will be given to new and more sustainable technologies, to the development of new products or to the valorization of dairy byproducts. Life cycle analysis, circular economy strategies, and best available technologies for cleaning and disinfection will also be considered. Investigations on how new technologies and new ingredients affect food quality in all its dimensions are also welcome.
