Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural food products are increasingly sought by consumers due to their concern for consuming “healthy” products. The selection of these is usually based on the relation between natural products and beneficial health properties, as well as new knowledge regarding the impacts of production on the environment. Therefore, the evaluation of these products is extremely important, aiming to explore their composition, properties, and possible risks to consumers, the scientific community, and industry. There are several chemical and biological analyses which are normally performed to characterize and determine the safety of food products, including molecular, chromatographic, and spectroscopic methodologies.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present new advances on different methods of analysis and present new approaches used to evaluate natural food products, contributing to their valorization. Papers which have assessed the in vitro and in vivo safety and efficacy of natural products are especially welcomed for submission.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
