The field of nutritional immunology has become an emerging specialty within immunology over the past decade. With an expanding body of evidence, the impact of foods and nutritional components on gut and systemic immunity has been increasingly recognized. Furthermore, the implications of nutrition and nutritional intervention on prevention of disease and even corrections of pathophysiological conditions have become established concepts.

On the other hand, despite recent advance in the field, the interplay between nutritional processes and immune system is incompletely understood. Particularly, specific cellular and molecular immune responses invoked by food components and the role of the gut barrier and microbiota on the interaction between the immune system and nutrition remains to be fully elucidated. This research topic focuses on mechanistic, translational and clinical research on the interplay between foods, nutritional components and immunity in both physiological and pathophysiological conditions. We welcome submissions of both original research and review articles that address the issue of “Immunomodulatory functions of nutritional ingredients in health and disease”, including the roles of, but not limited to: microbiota, dietary fibers and probiotics.
