About the Collection

BMC Chemistry invites submissions to contribute to our Collection focusing on Future foods, flavors, and ingredients. 

Food chemistry remains a rapidly evolving field, shaped by technological breakthroughs, shifting consumer preferences, and the growing imperative for sustainability. This Collection seeks to showcase research that addresses the challenges and opportunities in developing sustainable and enjoyable nutrition for the future, emphasizing novel foods, flavor enhancement, and integrating innovative ingredients into the food supply chain.

Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovations in novel foods and technologies: exploration of emerging food sources, alternative proteins, and novel processing techniques.
  • Advancements in flavor chemistry and sensory perception: research on flavor science and aroma compounds.
  • Sustainability in ingredients and circular food systems: strategies for incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly ingredients into food production.
  • Plant-based and alternative ingredients: investigations into plant-based alternatives, meat analogs, and non-traditional protein sources.
  • Innovations in food preservation: technologies and methods for extending shelf life, reducing food waste, and maintaining nutritional quality.

We invite the submission of original chemistry-focused research articles, reviews, and methodological papers that contribute to advancing knowledge in these areas.
