Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Food Safety and Toxicology” seeks high quality works focusing on advances arising from the search for processed and natural new products for human and animal nutrition. Society is becoming aware that the future of countries will depend on how they eat, with emphasis being placed on safe and low ecological impact processes to obtain foods, functional foods, and food additives as well as bioassays to evaluate such as safety. In parallel, new models for assessing toxicology, genotoxicology, chemoprevention, and aging on animal and human feeding need to be validated for the new processed and natural products.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • New natural products for human and animal nutrition
  • Processed products for human and nutrition
  • Ready-to-eat foods
  • Postharvest technology
  • Food quality technology
  • New biological models for toxicology evaluation
