Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plant extracts are recognized as natural sources of antioxidants, and their application in the food industry increases the shelf life of the products by preventing undesirable changes in nutritional and sensory properties. Exploiting the diversity and functionality of plant biomolecules has received significant interest in recent years and could create opportunities to design new products that meet the consumer’s demands.

This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the function of plant constituents as alternatives to synthetic preservatives, along with techniques to facilitate the implementation of their application in the food industry for increasing safety and food quality. Moreover, the effect of advanced processing technologies on protecting the level of bioactive compounds in food products and increasing bio-accessibility will be discussed.
