Advances in Food Science and Technology

About AFST

Advances in Food Science and Technology ISSN 6732-4215 is a fully-online, peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers all aspects of food science and technology.

Aims and Scope

Advances in Food Science and Technology publishes articles on wide range of subject areas such as pure research in the various sciences associated with food to practical experiments designed to improve technical processes. Subjects range from raw material composition to consumer acceptance, from physical properties to food engineering practices, and from quality assurance and safety to storage, distribution, marketing and use. While the main aim of the Journal is to provide a forum for papers describing the results of original research, review articles are also welcomed.
