The editors of Food Production, Processing and Nutrition are pleased to announce the launch of the first special issue of the journal.
Bioactive proteins and peptides are considered as important ingredients in functional foods, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals. The roles of bioactive proteins and peptides include antioxidant, antimicrobial, antihypertensive, immunomodulatory and other biological activities. The aim of the special issue is to provide innovative, original research and comprehensive reviews that reflect the latest developments in the field. Both fundamental research and applied areas are of interest.
Potential topics include, but not limited to:
- Identification and preparation of new bioactive peptides
- Physiological functional activities of bioactive proteins and peptides
- Physiological regulation mechanism of bioactive peptides
- Application of bioactive proteins and peptides in food or health care products
