Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The consumption of artisanal foods is increasing worldwide due to consumer preference for alternative and natural foods, without chemicals or industrial processing. However, artisanal foods can harbor biological, chemical and physical hazards that can affect consumer health and other contaminants that can alter the quality and characteristics of these products, demanding proper control during manufacturing, storage and consumption. This Special Issue will focus on the current challenges of artisanal food production worldwide:

  • Microbiological quality of artisanal foods
  • Microbiological safety of artisanal foods
  • Microbial ecology of artisanal foods
  • Microbial interactions in artisanal foods
  • Beneficial microbiota naturally present in artisanal foods
  • Control of foodborne pathogens in artisanal foods
