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.

Pretreatment

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

Separation

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

Characterization

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