Food Chemistry

Food Chemistry publishes original research papers dealing with the advancement of the chemistry and biochemistry of foods or the analytical methods/ approach used. All papers should focus on the novelty of the research carried out.

Topics include:

  • Chemistry relating to major and minor components of food, their nutritional, physiological, sensory, flavour and microbiological aspects;
  • Bioactive constituents of foods, including antioxidants, phytochemicals, and botanicals. Data must accompany sufficient discussion to demonstrate their relevance to food and/or food chemistry;
  • Chemical and biochemical composition and structure changes in molecules induced by processing, distribution and domestic conditions;
  • Effects of processing on the composition, quality and safety of foods, other bio-based materials, by-products, and processing wastes;
  • Chemistry of food additives, contaminants, and other agro-chemicals, together with their metabolism, toxicology and food fate.
