Welcome to ISNFF website. We are pleased to announce the activities of the society as reflected in its annual meeting and exhibition, journal and newsletter publication and sponsorship opportunities. ISNFF is Disciplinary Interest Group of IUFoST (approved 2008 in Shanghai).


The Journal of Food Bioactives (JFB), a dedicated publication of ISNFF, was  
launched in 2018 and completed a successful first year with many reviews and original manuscripts. Please note that papers presented during ISNFF Conferences  
and Exhibitions may be submitted for publication consideration to the Journal of Food Bioactives . To review the published manuscripts please refer to the journal web-site. The first issue of the journal for 2019 will be released later this month. We have also moved to Scholar One Software for better ease of operation. Please note that there are no publication fees at this time for the journal.  
Meanwhile, the first journal of ISNFF, the Journal of Functional Foods (JFF) also had a successful year with increased impact factor.  
As the founding editor of JFF, I am proud to the hard work of ISNFF in its first initiative.
