Themed Issue on foods, the large bowel microbiota and health outcomes now published

The new themed issue for Food & Function titled “Foods, the large bowel microbiota and health outcomes” is now published.

This special themed collection, guest edited by Dr David Topping and Dr Michael Conlon, features a selection of manuscripts on the theme of Foods, the large bowel miscrobiota and health outcomes . There is intense and growing interest in the role of the large bowel microbial populations and its metabolic products on outcomes which have a profound influence on human health and the risk of serious disease. Diet has a significant impact on the microbiota and its activities and this special issue seeks to capture the latest research on the interplay between foods (and food components) on the microbiota and the consequences for health status.

We hope you enjoy this collection!

Introducing New Food & Function Editorial Board Member Professor H. Douglas Goff

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor H. Douglas Goff to the Food & Function Editorial Board.


Professor Goff of the Department of Food Science at the University of Guelph, Canada is best known for his research into the ingredients, structure, manufacturing and quality of ice-cream. More recently, he has focussed on polysaccharides as dietary fibre due to his longstanding interests in polysaccharide structure and funtionality combined with his knowledge of nutritional sciences. Further research is ongoing related to soluble fibre fortification in dairy products and into the effect of added fibre on health.


We welcome Professor Goff and his expertise to the Food & Function Editorial Board. Why not submit your paper to the journal today!
