Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A major focus of the food industry has always been the improvement of food quality, particularly as it relates to sensory and nutritional properties. Among the food ingredients, bioactive compounds such as carotenoids, polyphenols, functional proteins and polysaccharides are drawing increasing attention for their potential to enable modern food manufacturing. Regarding methodology, the application of separation methods such as the conjunction of emerging technologies (e.g., modern membrane technology) with chromatography has opened great opportunities for a more comprehensive analysis of bioactive compounds, which has developed into quite a research community.

This Special Issue intends to collect recent findings related to innovative separation methods or technology applications in the analysis of foods, beverages or functional compounds, with the aim of assessing their authenticity, safety, aroma or health-promoting potential. This Special Issue will cover various topics, including but not limited to the separation, identification or analysis of bioactive compounds.
