Food Technology:
- Innovative technology of food development including biotechnological and microbiological aspects
- Effects of processing on food composition and nutritional value

Food Chemistry:
- Bioactive constituents of foods
- Chemistry relating to major and minor components of food
- Analytical methods

Food Quality and Functionality:
- Sensory methodologies
- Functional properties of food
- Food physics
- Quality, storage and safety of food

Nutritional Research Section:
- Nutritional studies relating to major and minor components of food

“News” section:
- Announcements of congresses
- Books reviews

Out of the scope of the journal are:

- Works which do not have a substantial impact on food and nutrition sciences
- Works which are of only local significance i.e. concern indigenous foods, without wider applicability or exceptional nutritional or health related properties
- Works which comprise merely data collections, based on the use of routine analytical
or bacteriological methods standard methods, determination of mineral content or proximate analysis)
- Works concerning biological activities of foods but do not provide the chemical characteristics
of compounds responsible for these properties
- Nutritional questionnaire surveys
- Works related to the characteristics of foods purchased at local markets
- Works related to food law
- Works emphasizing effects of farming / agricultural conditions / weather conditions on the quality
of food constituents
- Works which address plants for non-food uses (i.e. plants exhibiting therapeutic and/or medicinal effects)

Reviews on specific topics relevant to the advance of the Baltic Region food science and nutrition research are particularly welcome.

Review Policy: The Co-Editors with the Editor-in-Chief will select submitted manuscripts in relationship to their innovative and original content. Referees will be selected from the Advisory Board and/or qualified Polish or foreign scientists. Acceptance of a paper rests with the referees.
