Journal of Ethnic Foods is calling for submissions to our Collection on 'Health Benefits and Functions of Ethnic Foods focusing on Fermented Foods.' In recent years, ethnic foods, especially traditional fermented foods, have garnered significant attention due to their potential health benefits. This special issue aims to explore the relationship between ethnic foods and health promotion, with a specific focus on disease prevention, the interaction between fermenting microorganisms and ingredients, and their impact on the human gut and associated diseases. We encourage submissions that investigate the effects of fermented foods on human health, including their influence on digestion, immune function, the human gut microbiota, and overall well-being.
In addition to the original research articles with experimental and clinical data, review articles that provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge in this field is more than welcome.
Please join us in exploring the diverse health benefits and functions of ethnic foods focusing on traditional fermented foods and contribute to advancing the knowledge in this exciting field.
