Valorization of Food Waste : Polyphenols extraction using Innovative Technologies

richard marounProf. Richard Maroun, Dean Faculty of sciences at Saint-Joseph University Beirut, Lebanon will join the Polyphenols Applications 2021 Congress which will be held on September 22-24, 2021.

Prof. Richard Maroun will give a presentation entitled "Valorization of Food Waste : Polyphenols extraction using Innovative Technologies".

Summary of talk: Food by-products are considered as a cheap source of valuable components since existing technologies allow for the recovery of the target compounds and the recycling into the food chain as functional additives in different industrial products.

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. 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 final products such as food additives, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, etc.

Prof. Richard Maroun will chair a workshop dedicated to Food byproducts valorization through polyphenols extraction. Business creation from lab to market which will be held one day before the congress, on September 22, 2021.
