The close relationship between food and health is well established. Recently, special attention has been paid on the positive and negative physiological effects of food on the gastrointestinal, metabolic and immunological disorders. However, the currently available evidences are not always so satisfactory in clarifying the mechanisms by which food can produce various changes in our health conditions. A special issue on the “Effects of foods on gastrointestinal, metabolic and immunological function” aims to establish basic and clinical evidences for the role of food in the fields of nutrition physiology, endocrinology, immunology, and neuroscience among others.
We invite researchers to submit high-quality original or review papers on the food-health relationship. Potential topics include, but are not limited:
1. Digestive function and disorder 2. Metabolic studies 3. Appetite 4. Obesity 5. Eating disorders 6. Sensory component of foods 7. Taste and olfaction 8. Food chemistry 9. Nutrition and immunological disorder 10. Food allergies and intolerances 11. Stress and digestive function 12. Food and Emotion
