Epidemiological studies have already established a close association between a fruit/vegetable-rich diet and a significantly reduced incidence of chronic diseases (i.e., diabetes, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, cancers, etc.). Bioactive phytochemicals are therefore of increasing interest for their roles both in preventive strategies (e.g., increased intake in the framework of healthy nutritional plans) and as adjuvants in the treatment of the above pathologies.
On the other hand, the functional food market is growing with an annual average rate of about 15%, involving huge economic interests worldwide, which have been forecast to reach at least $230 billion by next year.
The main aims of the Special Issue on "Bioactive phytochemicals and Functional Food Ingredients in Fruits and Vegetables" is to be an open forum where researchers may present their investigations and findings in this promising field and, thanks to the open access platform, increase their visibility and the chances to interact with industries and the production systems.
