Abstract

This thesis presents novel ways of recovering of valuable compounds from food industry side streams. It does so via evaluating two case studies for the valorization of such streams. These types of streams are often referred to as waste and discarded. However, they are rich sources of nutraceuticals (e.g polyphenols), proteins and dietary fiber. Recently the use of these side streams has gained significant interest in the scientific community and different alternatives to recover high value products are being investigated that may contribute to the transition from the current linear economy to a more circular economy.
