Dietary advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are generated when fats and sugars react with proteins in our diet, and the formation is further increased by cooking and processing. Over the past decades, dietary habits have dramatically changed due to the increased consumption of processed foods, thereby increasing the exposure to dietary AGEs. The bioavailability and physiological consequences of dietary AGEs are largely unknown. These dietary AGEs may have consequences on the gastrointestinal tract and on intestinal microbiota, and may enter the blood circulation, where they may have effects on different tissues and/or may be directly excreted in urine. High circulating levels of AGEs have been implicated in inflammation and various adverse cardio-metabolic health outcomes such as insulin resistance, pancreatic beta cell dysfunction, T2DM, arterial stiffness, disorders of the central nervous system, and even mortality. Although several important contributions have been made in this field, it remains unclear to what extent dietary AGEs play a role in these adverse health outcomes. In fact, we cannot exclude the possibility that there are also beneficial effects of dietary AGEs. In this Special Issue, progress made in aspects of dietary AGEs and human health will be included. We ask the experts in the field to contribute their latest research, perspectives, or reviews on this fascinating and rapidly progressing topic.

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.
