Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The modern food industry aims to meet the needs of consumers regarding the nutrition, safety, and long-term storage of diverse foods. Due to the influence of mechanical, chemical, biological, and other factors in the processing of food products, we need to improve the quality of foods by using additives, such as preservatives, color protectors, antioxidants, etc. With the increasing demand for healthy food, the application of natural bioactive compounds in stabilizing and improving the quality of food processing has become a new trend. Bioactive compounds include, but are not limited to, molecules of plant, animal, or microbial origin, such as polypeptides, polyphenols, polysaccharides, etc., which usually have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antibacterial, antidiabetic, and other health functions. At present, the evaluation of bioactive compounds and their application in food processing are of great practical significance. This Special Issue will provide readers with a selection of papers that represent the current state of knowledge on the application and evaluation of bioactive compounds in food processing.

This Special Issue, “Application and Evaluation of Bioactive Compounds in Food Processing”, seeks high-quality works focusing on the development of bioactive compounds, the evaluation of bioactive compounds’ properties, and the application of bioactive compounds in food processing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. The development of bioactive compounds related to food processing;
  2. Evaluation of bioactive compounds’ properties ;
  3. The application of bioactive compounds in food products;
  4. Development and structural characterization of natural bioactive compounds in food processing;
  5. The use of bioactive compounds in improving food quality as well as their mechanisms.
