Phenolic compounds in Food waste valorization: figures and perspectives

Richard Maroun Bonn Polyphneols 2018

During the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018, Prof. Richard Maroun from Saint-Joseph University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon will give presentation about "Phenolic compounds in Food waste valorization: figures and perspectives".

According to Prof. Richard Maroun: "Food waste valorization practices have gained much attention lately as a means of sustainable management. These materials constitute an underexploited source for the recovery of natural compounds. The value of food byproducts is associated with their content in dietary fibers and several bioactive molecules which can be capitalized in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nutraceutical industries. One of the main molecules extracted and purified are polyphenols. Our work aims to purify these natural antioxidant molecules through innovative technologies in order to reintegrate them as valuable additives in several industrial applications".
