This new volume presents original research and scientific advances in the field of the food bioprocessing, bioproducts, valorization of agricultural and food wastes, microbiology, and biotechnology. It explores the most important advances in the valorization of agri-food residues for the production of bioproducts and in the development of several bioprocessing strategies. The authors place a special emphasis on the challenges that the industry faces in the era of sustainable development and aim to facilitate the reduction of food loss and waste. This book demonstrates the potential and actual development and advances in the design and development of strategies and tools for the bioprocessing of agri-food residues for the production of bioproducts.
Bioprocessing of Agri-Food Residues for Production of Bioproducts covers aspects related to biotransformation of agri-food residues such as mango seed, citrus waste, pomegranate husks, nut shells, melon peels, leaves and grains, cheese whey, among others.
