Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

NUTS2020 (https://nuts2020.com/) is a international scientific meeting that will take place in Reus (Spain) on 18–19 June 2020. We want to take advantage of the high quality of the Nutrients journal in order to publish the proceedings from this important meeting that will gather different worldwide experts in the nut/dried fruits–disease axis. We plan on publishing at least 10 manuscripts following these key topics: (1) nuts, energy balance, and body weight; (2) nuts, insulin resistance, and diabetes; (3) nuts, lipoproteins, and dyslipidemia; (4) nuts and the gastrointestinal system; (5) nuts, inflammation, and oxidation; (6) nuts and cardiovascular disease outcomes; (7) nut consumption, aging, and cognition; (8) nuts and cancer; (9) dried fruit and health; and (10) future lines of research.
