Milk is one of the primary sources of human nutrients such as proteins, lipids, and mineral components, each others, and is one of the most consumed foods worldwide. In past couple of decades, milk consumption has increased due to many factors including both population and economic growth in developing countries while, on the other hand, production has decreased or remained the same for certain countries. In the case of Brazil, which is sixth largest producer of milk in the world, milk consumption has been exceeded milk production over past five years. Even though milk and milk by-products seem to be safer than ever before, from a technical point of view and due to many quality control programs established by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, the safety perception of Brazilian consumers has decreased significantly due to recent scandals related to milk production fraud. In this way, the searching by new analytical approaches to access food with respect the presence of residues and adulterants remains on focus of the Brazilian governmental agencies and researching institutions. There are a number of methods for food analysis that including different techniques such as mass spectrometry coupled to separation system, spectroscopy and molecular biology. However practical aspects involving the application of these methodologies in real situations deserve to be considered. The present special issue of ““International Journal of Nutrition and Food Sciences”” will deal about this aspects in the Brazilian inspection scenario and research focusing on:

i) Gas chromatography aspects in targeted analysis of pesticides in milk;
ii) Proteomic-like approaches to adulteration in bovine milk;
iii) Methodologies and technologic aspects to production of reference material of milk
