The Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge in field of food and nutrition. It  aims to publish high quality of articles in journal. It invites the reports of theoretically informed and empirically grounded research which focuses on important issues related to  food and nutrition. Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders includes a wide range of fields in its discipline like Food Safety, Malabsorption & Nutritional, Food Allergies, Food Microbiology, Eating Concerns/Eating Disorders, Diet supplements and Disorders, Food, Health & Wellness, Child Nutrition & Health.

Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders is an online, best peer-reviewed, scientific, hybrid, journal which offers dual mode of publication, open access & subscription. This mode provides the means to maximize the visibility, citations and readership which enhance the impact of the research work and provides a range of options to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. It accepts research, review papers, online letters to the editors & brief comments on previously published articles or other relevant findings in SciTechnol. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by a group of peer review experts in the field and ensures that the published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate and reliable.

Scope and Relevance:

The journal uses Editorial Manager System for a qualitative and prompt review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders or relevant experts from other universities or institutes. Minimum two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the editorial system. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor whereas the editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process via editorial manager.

What’s Bugging you and your Diet?

Trillions of microorganisms live in and on our bodies. These are active communities of bacteria, viruses, archaea, and unicellular eukaryotes, collectively known as the microbiota. These organisms are involved in the development and regulation of host immunity, digestion and absorption, metabolism, behavior, and protection from pathogens. The microbiota inhabits all external surfaces of the body. These include the skin, and the urogenital, respiratory, and gastrointestinal tracts, with an estimated 70% of the microbiota residing in the colon . While the human gut microbiota is comprised of more than 50 bacterial phyla, the two that predominate are Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes, with Proteobacteria, Verrucomicrobia, Actinobacteria, Fusobacteria, and Cyanobacteria having a lesser presence.

Factors Associated with Hypertension and Overweight in Metallurgical Workers: A Cross-Sectional Study

The prevalence of overweight and hypertension have increased among Brazilian workers. There are evidences that chronic exposure to stressful working conditions. Furthermore,it is believed that such conditions may favor the occurrence of unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and hyperalimentation, which are risk factors for hypertension and overweight. This study aims to identify factors associated with overweight and hypertension in metallurgical workers of the state of Bahia - Brazil. It's a crosssectional study conducted with 139 workers.

Color Kinetics of Capsicum During Microwave Assisted Fluidized Bed Drying

From last few decades, many advances in hybrid drying technologies have been emerged with the objective to minimize the degradation of various quality attributes of agricultural produce, shorting time and saving energy during drying. This experiments involves to study the effect of microwave powers on change in color kinetics of capsicum(Capsicum annuum, L.) during drying by microwave assisted fluidized bed dryer. Capsicum samples of average thickness of 6.35 mm and length of 20.25 mm were used in the drying experiments.The drying were carried out at different combinations, selected by RSM design, of microwave output powers such as 180 W, 360 W,and 540 W) and different inlet air velocities and temperatures.

A Review on Effects of Climate Change on Plants and Ecosystems and Certain Approaches for Plant Response Studies under Climate Change Scenario with Specific Focus on FACE

Global climatechange is a ground reality and a continuous process thatneeds to be taken seriously. Climate change is a serious challenge faced by all flora and fauna on earth. Two main implications of climate change are the rise in atmospheric CO2andincrease in global mean temperature. It has already affected plant diversity, as demonstratedby changes in species distribution, creation of new assemblage of plants, changes inpopulation structure near to coastal zone and extinction of several endemic plants. It also has a major impact on the productivity of agricultural and horticultural crops, forest and land degradation, freshwater shortage, and offers a great research challenges to the scientists. A comprehensive knowledge of plant responses are needed against the projected concentration of CO2,possible at the end of this century. This will be helpfulto understandhow the plants are currently responding and how they could be adapted in changing scenario.
