Recent Progress in Nutrition is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of nutritional sciences. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics. Also, it aims to enhance the international exchange of scientific activities in nutritional science and human health.

Recent Progress in Nutrition publishes high quality intervention and observational studies in nutrition. High quality systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also welcome as are pilot studies with preliminary data and hypotheses generating studies. Emphasis is placed on understanding the relationship between nutrition and health and of the role of dietary patterns in health and disease.

Topics contain but are not limited to:

  • Macronutrients
  • Micronutrients
  • Essential nutrients
  • Bioactive nutrients
  • Nutrient requirements
  • Nutrient sources
  • Human nutrition aspects
  • Functional foods
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Health claims
  • Public health
  • Diet-related disorders
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Malnutrition
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Sport nutrition

It publishes a variety of article types: original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.

There is no restriction on paper length, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive. Authors should present their results in as much detail as possible, as reviewers are encouraged to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About the topic:

Gluten-related diseases (GRDs) are a broad spectrum of chronic conditions such as celiac disease, wheat allergy, dermatitis herpetiformis, gluten ataxia and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, and manifested by symptoms of gastrointestinal tract as well as many others coming from various hematological dermatological endocrinological, gynecological, rheumatological, and nervous-system-associated complaints. Currently, the only available safe and effective treatment for GRDs is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet (GFD), however, unintentional gluten exposure on a GFD is common and intermittent, and most patients trend to attain a gluten-reduced diet instead of the recommended strict GFD.

A potential role for a GFD has been suggested in other gastrointestinal conditions such as inflammatory bowel diseases or irritable bowel syndrome. Moreover, a widespread diffusion of the GFD among healthy subjects as popular choice inspired by mass media and celebrities has made it necessary not only to confirm its beneficial effects but also to clarify some existing controversies.

This Special Issue will collect novel and updated studies focusing on:

  • -The effect of a GFD in GRDs but also inflammatory bowel diseases and irritable bowel syndrome, including patient management after diet instauration, adherence to the diet, and/or ways to monitor it.
  • -New knowledge about GFD: technological and nutritional aspects.
  • -Identification of new potential applications of GFD and to elucidate some debatable aspects.

Received: 21 July 2022;  Published: 17 July 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2303012


Celiac disease is a prevalent autoimmune disorder with a rising incidence of 7.5% annually during the second half of the 20th century and the 21st century. Not all genetically susceptible individuals that carry the risk alleles HLA DQ2 and DQ8 go on to develop celiac disease, suggesting that there [...]
