Increased production of food is generating more and more food residues and waste, having environmental, economic and societal impacts. These by-products contain significant potential for use in the development of value-added products due to their composition of valuable compounds. Compounds with health benefits, extracted from food residues and waste, can target the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases; additionally, nutrients from these products can help target widespread malnutrition. Further research into this field may provide benefits to the population in a variety. Some of the opportunities may include the development of food products and the extraction of nutritionally valuable compounds for health benefits.
This Special Issue aims to target current status of research into the development of innovative value-added products from food residues and waste. The Guest Editor welcomes submissions from researchers working on the extraction, characterisation, processing, product development and nutritional intervention studies in animals and humans and economic models of value-added products from food residues and waste. Researchers should submit original research papers, reviews and short communications to this Special Issue.
