Valorization of Organic Materials from Food Industry Sidestreams

Within valorization of side streams from food industry and agriculture, and underutilized products, our competence involves a global approach with four subareas: pre-treatment, separation, characterization and ingredient design.

Supercritical CO2 extraction of bioactive compounds, protein separation as well as combined processes focused on improved yields and functionality are among our main strengths.


  • Drying and milling
  • Fractionation
  • Microwave, PEF and high power ultrasound


  • Extraction of polar / nonpolar bioactive compounds
    • Supercritical CO 2 extraction with / without co-solvents
    • Pressurized liquid extraction
  • Fractionation
  • Protein isolation
  • Enzymatic treatments


  • Yield analysis
  • Antioxidant activity and profile
  • Total phenolic content
  • Protein Size
  • Protein content
  • Fatty acids profile
  • Functional properties
