Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Nutraceutical Components of Foods—Current State of the Art
We are all familiar with the popular slogan, “you are what you eat”, and today, everyone is becoming more aware of the impact of diet on our health. Moreover, the media promote much information on so-called healthy eating, diets, and lifestyle fashions. Distinguishing what is reliable or not is often difficult for the consumer. Additionally, the contemporary world is struggling with the aging of the population, which necessitates the design of a diet for “healthy aging”. In this context, nutraceuticals, health-supportive substances, are still significant, remaining in the focus of scientific interests and being continuously developed worldwide.
I am honored to announce this Special Issue titled “Current State of the Art—Nutraceutical Components of Foods”. This issue is jointed with another similar Special Issue in Applied Sciences (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci/special_issues/Nutraceutical_Components). Our Special Issue is addressed to all scientists who study, inter alia, i) the therapeutic potential of food-derived compounds; ii) analyzing them using in vitro, in vivo, and in silico methodologies; iii) the impact of dietary patterns on the risks of diet-related diseases; iv) the interactions between nutraceutical foods and other food components in the context of human health; v) novel technologies aiming to provide nutraceuticals to the organism in an active form; and vi) the pros and cons of nutraceutical foods. All types of articles, i.e., reviews, original papers, and short communications, are kindly welcome.
The deadlines for manuscript submission are 30 June 2021 (Nutraceuticals) and 15 September 2021 (Applied Sciences). We also encourage authors to submit, in advance, short abstracts or tentative titles to the Editor (Melon Zhang; e-mail: [email protected]). The submitted papers should not be considered for publication elsewhere.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Prof. Dr. Anna Iwaniak
