    Special Issue on Cooking Oil Safety

    Cooking oil, such as peanut oil, canola oil and soy oil, has been widely used in frying, baking and food preparation. It contains high levels of unsaturated fats and is generally healthier for people than those containing saturated fats such as coconut oil. Illicit cooking oil, recycled from waste oil and resold as a cheaper alternative, has been shown to be very toxic and can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain. While cooking oil can be recycled and used to produce soap and biodiesel, more environmentally friendly way should be taken to rational use of waste oil. As cooking oil has great importance to human health, it’s of great attraction to researchers.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring cooking oil safety. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    •       Recourse of cooking oil
    •       Types and characteristics
    •       Saturated and unsaturated fats
    •       Health and nutrition
    •       Extraction and refinement
    •       Storing and keeping
    •       Waste cooking oil
    •       Safety and threats
    •       Recycling of waste oil


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Cooking Oil Safety” should be chosen during your submission.
