The past few years has seen a resurgence in the need for and development of new methods and techniques for assuring the quality and safety of food.
Much of this comes on the back of major food scandals, continued globalization and complexity of the food supply chain, new threats (e.g., nanotechnology), advances in instrumentation (especially Mass Spectrometry) and a shifting definition of how we define food quality. The ERA Chair ISO-FOOD as guest editor of this special issue invites people to submit original research and critical reviews on the use of isotopic techniques relating to food safety and quality. Although ISO-FOOD has a bias towards the use of Isotope in authenticity and traceability we will consider submissions on essential and nonessential elements and their speciation, organic contaminant and important bioactive compounds in food and articles on the exploitation of big data in relation to food chemistry as long as they conform to the scope of FOOD Chemistry.
