About this Research Topic
This Research Topic is focused on the role of microbial systems and bioprocesses for better exploitation of the agro-food resources, including waste recycling and agricultural by-products, targeting improved nutritional quality of food for human and animals.
Manuscripts of interest will discuss:
• new technologies involving microbial approaches aiming at developing sustainable food systems;
• biotransformation of agricultural waste;
• novel and/or non- conventional substrates to ameliorate food/feed production and nutritional quality;
• impact of processing technologies in the perspective of security and sustainable production.
Finally, a multi-disciplinary approach is also welcome, from technology, nutrition and consumer science to a policy-based and socio-economic point of view. All article types will be considered, including Original Research articles, Reviews and Mini-reviews and Perspective articles focussing on challenges, future needs and how to measure the success of these approaches.
Keywords: Sustainability, Bioprocessing, Microorganisms, Enzymes, Food, Feed
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
