In the last twenty years, extraction of antioxidants from food waste and by-products has been a topic of ever-increasing popularity, not only in the research field, but also in the industrial sector.
Published researches have investigated different aspects including: screening of food wastes as potential source of antioxidant compounds; comparison and optimisation of conventional, non-conventional and greener extraction methods; encapsulation of extracted compounds with different carrier materials and through different technologies; and food and non-food applications of extracted antioxidants.
Despite the large number of publications on the extraction of antioxidants from food waste, there is still a great interest on the topic and lack of examples of large scale industrial implementation of research results.
This Special Issue will then welcome manuscripts particularly addressing the following themes related to the extraction of antioxidants from food waste:
- Investigation of new functionalities.
- Assessment of antioxidants stability and efficiency in vivo and real systems.
- Emerging non-conventional greener extraction technologies.
- Evaluation of economic and logistic feasibility of extraction processes.
- Innovative food and non-food applications, such as materials, cosmetics, pharmacy.
