Functional beverages are defined as those able to provide additional benefits beyond the general benefits of nutrient intake and satisfaction of hunger. Over the last year, some efforts have been made by scientific community to reinforce the need to have healthy nutritional habits, which help to prevent or minimize the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases. Indeed, there has been a growing demand for functional beverages in many parts of the world. Hence, the need to study bioactive compounds to be used as ingredients of functional foods has arisen. Among the wide panoply of bioactive compounds already studied, phenolic compounds stand out as a very attractive ingredient for functional beverages since, in addition to their nutritional implications, phenolic compounds are also related with some food quality properties, such as color and taste. Therefore, the development of functional beverages with phenolic compounds as functional ingredients has been growing. Hence, the Special Issue “Phenolic Compounds and Functional Beverages” will focus on findings related with the use of phenolic compounds used as ingredients of functional beverages. Implications in health outcomes as well as the effect in organoleptic properties will also be covered.Dr. María Rosa Pérez-Gregorio
