Special Issue "Nuts Intake and Human Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 January 2020.
Interests: bioaccessibility; gut microbiota; antimicrobial; functional foods; in vitro digestion; clinical microbiology; food microbiology
Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on nut intake and human health, which will include research on all aspects of nut intake and effects on human health, including cardiometabolic health (heart disease, type 2 diabetes) and gut health (prebiotics, cancer prevention). We invite you to submit your latest research to this Special Issue.
With the increasing popularity of plant-based diets, understanding the health effects of nut consumption has never been so important.
All types of study will be considered where nuts are a key component of the analysis/intervention, including intervention trials, epidemiological studies, in vitro studies and metanalyses. All nuts (tree and ground nuts) whether individually, in combination or as significant components of a dietary intervention will be eligible for inclusion. Studies on the digestion and bioavailability of nutrients and phytochemicals, energy metabolism, appetite, satiety and obesity from nuts are also welcome.
