Paper Invitation: [Foods- IF = 3.011] Special Issue “Natural Carotenoids as Functional Food Ingredients”

Dear Colleagues,


As the Guest Editors of a Special Issue of Foods, we expect to gather interdisciplinary research about carotenoids/apocarotenoids, highlighting the potential for novel applications in foods. In particular, we encourage the submission of manuscripts on new sustainable sources and/or technologies of carotenoid production and stabilization, development of up-to-date analytical methods for identification and quantification in raw and processed foods, human uptake processes (bioacessibility/bioavailability), and mechanistic pathways of health-promoting effects. The design and application of effective delivery systems into the food matrix (novel emulsions/nanoemulsions, coated particles) are also welcome.
