Highly selective and environmentally friendly fruit extraction using supercritical fluids technology

Objective

The last century has witnessed major advances in food science and technology and in nutrition. Indeed innovations have dramatically improved the quality, safety, and availability of food products, meaning a better quality of life for consumers. On the other hand, over the last years the protection of the environment has become a major concern for mankind and thus important progress has been achieved in order to produce foods with the higher respect for Nature. Nevertheless, much remains to be done. At present, one of the main problems of SMEs processing vegetables for food is waste management.

However, waste produced by these companies can be recycled into added value products, since it contains a significant percentage of functional compounds. These compounds - flavonoids, phenolic acids and anthocyanidins among others - show anti-oxidant properties and can be used as natural colour and flavour additives.
