Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an original research article, review or perspective for the special issue titled ‘Salivary metabolomics in human health and nutrition’. In the past saliva was mainly considered as a digestive fluid that plays an important role in the oral processing of foods, but recent studies have shown that its metabolite composition is as complex as that of serum, and that it offers a promising pain-free alternative to invasive sampling. Integration of saliva metabolomics with nutrition research can allow us to get a deeper understanding of how dietary intake, preference and sensory perception can affect a person’s overall health and disease status/trajectory Therefore, this special issue will be dedicated to understanding how the metabolic changes and dynamics, via the application and utility of metabolomics approaches,  in the saliva can help explain human taste, diet, dietary habits, eating behavior and disease status.
