This Special Issue is aimed at the big advances achieved in the past decade regarding the contents of nutrients, bioactive compounds, and contaminants in foods, as well as their effects on human health. The improvement in the analytical techniques and the advancement of knowledge in the analysis of lipidomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, genomics, epigenomics, and metagenomics has allowed for the better diagnosis, prevention, and/or treatment of multiple pathologies.
Particularly, the non-transmissible chronic diseases related to nutrition have gained a great deal of attention because of their high prevalence, increasing trend, and impact on health systems around the world. Thus, this Special Issue welcomes original studies regarding new methods for the determination of nutrients, bioactive compounds, and food contaminants. It welcomes assays on digestion, absorption, bioaccessibility and bioavailability, lipidomic, proteomic, genomic, epigenetic and metagenomic approaches, and their relationship with human health. Additionally, systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also welcome.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
