  • Introduction

    Contemporary Agriculture and Food Chemistry is a special issue that is multidisciplinary. It captures the science behind production and processing of healthy food. The special issue explores areas such as food safety, quality, nutrition and bioavailability of elements, processing, crop production, bioenergy and animal production with an aim of ensuring adequate supply of nutritious food for health in a sustainable way as well as carry out production in a safe and ecofriendly way. The special issue delves into the properties of micro-components of foods such as minerals, elements, additives, flavorants; properties of proteins, starches, carbohydrates, fats; interaction between micro-components and impact on bioavailability of nutrients; development of new food ingredients and ways of using ingredients; application of scientific principles in cooking; soil composition and impact on plant growth; conservation and management of soil; animal nutrition; development of new chemicals to increase crop production and yield, fight pests and protect the environment.
