Food Hydrocolloids Journal: Using Colloid Science to Find New Sustainable Solutions in Food

Special Issue title: 19th  Food Colloids Conference: Using Colloid Science to Find New Sustainable Solutions in Food

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue compiles original works presented in the 19th Food Colloids Conference: Using Colloid Science to Find New Sustainable Solutions in Food.

This year, the Food Colloids Conference is organized by the International Hellenic University on 14 -18 April 2024, in Thessaloniki, Greece, continuing the long history of these conferences, which started in 1986 in Leeds.

The conference focuses on basic and applied interdisciplinary research on food colloids, the physical chemistry aspects of these systems and their applications (e.g. human nutrition, food industry). This year’s conference has a special focus on sustainability with clean, environmentally friendly, plant-based approaches. Furthermore, it extends the applications of food colloids to non-food systems, including strongly related applications in biomedicine, pharmaceutics, cosmetics and packaging.
