Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With growing awareness about toxicological aspects related to processed food and the onset of chronic diseases, including but not limited to obesity, heart disease, and diabetes, this Special Issue aims to highlight the state-of-the-art in “Modern Processed Food and Human Health". Processed foods are generally regarded as those that undergo any changes (heating, pasteurizing, sterilizing, cooking, freezing, concentrating, drying, freeze-drying, salting, fermenting, marinating, smoking, active packaging, irradiation, and innovative techniques such as the use of high pressures, ultrasound, and electric fields) able to alter their natural state. Moreover, such foods are also characterized by the inclusion of other ingredients, such as preservatives, flavors, and nutrients.

To advance the field of modern processed food and human health, we invite the submission of both original research and impactful reviews that meaningfully contribute to our understanding of the impact of each or all of the aforementioned treatments on the quality of processed foods or on the quality of life (QoL) of consumers in terms of chronic disease induction, enhancement, or prevention.

In addition, great attention will be given to those manuscripts that will provide clinical or in vitro evidence of a direct or indirect effect exerted by conservation treatments, ingredients, and chemical contaminants on consumers' health.
