Special Issue in Foods: Natural Antimicrobials and Their Applications in Foods
The maintenance and improvement of the “Quality and Safety of Food Products” reflects the continuous effort made by businesses, consumers, government, public and private agencies, and scientists. This Special Issue of Molecules provides an opportunity for you to submit original and review papers related to all aspects of food microbiology. In this Special Issue, we would like to report on a variety of current food microbiology topics. These topics include the following: fermentation, lactic acid bacteria, probiotics, organic acid production, food safety, pathogen detection and occurrence in foods; pathogen contamination and limitation in foods; understanding of pathogen adaptation to food matrices and food processing conditions; natural antimicrobial activity and biocontrol in food chains; degradation of microbial metabolites toxic to humans; safety of food fermentation; emerging microbiological risks and food safety; innovative approaches in microbiological risk management in foods; and sustainable solutions to reduce microbial risks in the food chains.
In addition, in this Special Issue, we encourage authors to submit manuscripts in the form of a research paper, review, communication, etc. This issue of Molecules is a wonderful chance for us to share our knowledge, experience and expertise with a broader audience. Thank you so much for your interest and support.
