Journal of Food Science

An International Journal of the Institute of Food Technologists

Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Food Science (JFS) is an international publication of the Institute of Food Technologists, a not-for-profit society for food science and technology. JFS publishes peer-reviewed original research and reviews of all basic and applied aspects of food science for food scientists and other interested professionals. JFS also publishes supplements on hot topics.

As the premier international publication of articles concerning fundamental research covering all aspects of food science, JFS is composed of eight sections, with each section embodying various aspects of food research: Concise Reviews and Hypotheses in Food Science; Food Chemistry; Food Engineering and Physical Properties; Food Microbiology and Safety; Sensory and Food Quality; Nanoscale Food Science, Engineering, and Technology; Health, Nutrition, and Food; and Toxicology and Chemical Food Safety. These subject areas include food safety and quality, food laws and regulations, ingredients and ingredient functionality, nutraceuticals, product formulation, sensory science and strategies, statistical process control and its contribution to food processing operations, food chemistry and toxicology, food engineering, food microbiology, and nutritive qualities of food that advance and impact our understanding of health. 

Intended Readership:

Food scientists and technologists rely on the Journal of Food Science to advance their knowledge base, improve their ability to incorporate applications of food science into product development and processes, and keep abreast of emerging research worldwide.
