Polyphenols are molecules with a wide range of bioactive properties. They are being applied as nutraceuticals or natural colorants. The growing interest in these molecules has led to the creation of projects such as the BacHBerry project (www., with the main goal of discovering novel polyphenols and tapping their commercial application (Chapter 1). Moreover, the same project targets the synthesis of those secondary metabolites by fermentation, in order to increase process yield and decrease the environmental impact. That shift in the current paradigm, based on the recovery of polyphenols by plant extraction requires the development of different downstream process strategies
