Food Science and Obesity

Food Science and Obesity (FSO) is a peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal that focuses on the applications of food science in obesity. This journal, published by the Food Science Publisher, addresses one of the major health issues in the world by using the studies and principles of food and functional food science. It is a valuable resource to individuals looking for ways to reduce the risk of obesity and ways to advance current findings. This research can be beneficial to doctors, researchers, medical professionals, students, and the general population that are seeking information in this field. Food Science and Obesity is a relevant and interesting field that requires a specialized location where information regarding the topic can be found.

Obesity is becoming a growing health problem in the world, especially in the United States. Globally, roughly 1.9 billion individuals are considered obese. As such, food and functional food science becomes a crucial component in decreasing the number of obese cases because functional foods have the potential to reduce the risk of obesity. This can be (but not limited to): healthy diets, daily exercise, medication, etc.

In this journal, we hope to provide a space for information regarding obesity and food science. This can help our understanding of obesity and the ways that food science can help.
