Beverages have been a part of human nutrition for millennia. There are several beverages that are imprinted in the mind of consumers around the world. Such beverages were invented in the past and their production was optimized over hundreds of years before spreading throughout the world. Beverages can be separated into four general categories: fermented, not fermented, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic. Today, there are plenty of novel beverages appearing in the market and many more that are described in the literature. This trend reflects the increasing demand of the consumer for beverages with new and improved flavors, enhanced nutrient value, and functional roles that often need to satisfy diverse dietary lifestyles such as vegetarian, vegan, allergen-free, low carbohydrate calories, etc. As a result, scientists and technologists turn towards new and sometimes exotic raw materials to be employed in both traditional and new schemes for the production of beverages. The application of new technologies is also essential to achieve the desired product.
The scope of this special issue concerns all topics related to the development of novel beverages and novel technologies required for their production. Studies related to the application of novel technologies in well-established beverages will be also considered. We aim for a collection of high-quality papers that will be useful for researchers and practitioners in the field.
