Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food derived biomolecules implicated in reducing the risk of chronic diseases represent an important issue, both for scientists and for consumers. Food derived biomolecules may have a positive impact on body weight, blood pressure and glucose metabolism control, endothelial damage, lipid profile improvement, inflammation, oxidative stress. This Special Issue will be dedicated to new perspectives in biochemical and functional properties of foods and other natural products. Emerging food processing and preservation methods can enhance antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherosclerotic, antihypertensive, anti-cancer, immune boosting. Targeted techno-functional properties are used for new functional food product development against metabolic diseases and beyond, diabetes and cancer. Subjects that will be discussed in this Special Issue will focus not only on modern methods, technologies, and further handling of food prior to its consumption, but also on the verification of new preservation/packaging development and human health studies.

Dr. Furong Tian
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
