About the Journal

Advances in Food Technology and Nutritional Sciences - Open Journal (AFTNSOJ) strives to publish science-based information from the fields of nutrition and dietetics to assist professionals in related fields to stay up-to-date on current advancements and relevant issues.

“Food Technology” is a term describing food manufacturing and preservation processes; including physical, chemical, and microbiological operations in the handling, packaging, and distribution of food. Food Technology aims to increase the rates of production and lengthen shelf-life, without compromising the quality of the food or nutritional content.

Due to our world's growing population, the demand for food has been steadily increasing. Food technology will continue to play a major role in the future, to help production keep up with the demand for quality food. Large-scale production of safe and nutritious food is possible with research and development in food and nutrition.
