Food bioactive compounds are natural components generally present in small quantities in foods and possess biological activity in addition to having nutritional value. Most of these food bioactive compounds are present in small quantities in a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, cereals, oilseeds, and oils. These bioactive compounds are currently being intensively studied in order to evaluate their effects on health and enhance their biological activity on specific organs, such as the liver.
In this Special Issue, we will discuss the impact of bioactive compounds in foods on the development, prevention, and treatment of chronic liver diseases through original research articles, reviews, and editorials.
Potential issues may include but are not limited to interventional studies on the effect of different classes of bioactive compound (polyphenolic compounds, carotenoids, tocopherols, phytosterols, and organosulfur compounds) on human chronic liver diseases. These include diseases primarily affecting the liver such as chronic hepatitis, fibrosis, cirrhosis, alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver, hepatocellular carcinoma, diseases caused by the immune system, and inherited conditions.
Particular attention will be also given in defining the role of food bioactive compounds in reducing the risk of major chronic liver diseases and the underlying biological mechanisms that account for these effects in in vitro and in vivo experimental models.

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 papers will be 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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
