The issues of sustainability of food production, food security, and functionality are very high on the scientific and political agendas.
Communities around the world seek ways to sustain and increase agricultural production and increase the use of aquaculture as a medium to provide essential nutritious and affordable food to everyone.
Therefore, two colleagues (Liza Fragopoulou and Terry Smith) and myself, we joined forces to edit a Special Issue in the Journal of Chemistry
Structure and Functions of Biomolecules in Food and their Role in Producing Sustainably Functional Foods, Nutraceuticals, and Pharmaceuticals
Today, with some emerging doubts on the potency of omega-3 fatty acids to inhibit/cure CVDs,
there is a clear need to focus on biochemical and metabolomic studies of the bioactive food components that play a key role in designing and producing novel functional food with enhanced health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties.
Papers on the following topics are particularly welcome:
Natural products and inflammation
Dietary habits and inflammation
The biosynthesis of anti-inflammatory food components
Food security with focus to sustainable production of feeds
Functional food and health supplements against inflammation
Bioactive molecules and disease
