Special Issue "Whole Grains for Nutrition and Health Benefits"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 August 2020).
Interests: functional foods; the metabolic syndrome; biomarkers; children and adults; dietary supplements; athletes, non-athletes and exercisers
This Special Issue aims to communicate up-to-date evidence-based knowledge on the effects of grains, particularly whole grains, and grain-based products, including innovative versions of these products, on health in humans. Grains (whole grains) are a rich source of nutrients and were shown to have beneficial effects on the prevention and management of a number of chronic diseases, including but not limited to obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. There is also emerging evidence linking whole grain consumption to improved gut microbiota, with microbiota changes shown to be associated with a number of health outcomes. In addition, considering the increased prevalence of celiac disease, there is a trend toward exploring a variety of gluten-free grains, their nutritional characteristics, their incorporation into diet, and their impact on human health.
All forms of manuscripts, including experimental papers, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and short communications, are welcome.
I look forward to receiving your submissions.
