It is my privilege to announce a new Special Issue entitled “Polyphenolic Antioxidants from Agri-Food Waste Biomass”.
Nowadays, the re-use of industrial food residues is of paramount importance in the general framework of rational waste handling and recycling, which aims at the minimizing environmental impact of food production and producing functional food ingredients. Agri-food processing waste has long been considered a valuable biomass, bearing a significant polyphenol load and profile. Polyphenols, aside from being powerful antioxidants that confer inherent stability to a variety of foods, may also possess versatile bioactivities, including anti-inflammatory and chemopreventive properties.
The valorization of agri-food waste as a prominent sources of polyphenols stems from the enormous amount of food-related material discharged worldwide and the emerging eco-friendly technologies that allow high recovery, recycling, and sustainability of these materials.
This Special Issue addresses the concept of recovering natural polyphenolic antioxidants from waste biomass generated by agri-food and related industrial processes. Contributions pertaining to the sustainable production of isolated bioactive compounds or whole extracts and their utilization in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are particularly welcome.
