Food Waste Recovery: Processing Technologies, Industrial Techniques, and Applications, Second Edition provides information on safe and economical strategies for the recapture of value compounds from food wastes while also exploring their re-utilization in fortifying foods and as ingredients in commercial products. Sections discuss the exploration of management options, different sources, the Universal Recovery Strategy, conventional and emerging technologies, and commercialization issues that target applications of recovered compounds in the food and cosmetics industries. This book is a valuable resource for food scientists, technologists, engineers, chemists, product developers, researchers, academics and professionals working in the food industry.

Key Features

  • Covers food waste management within the food industry by developing recovery strategies
  • Provides coverage of processing technologies and industrial techniques for the recovery of valuable compounds from food processing by-products
  • Explores the different applications of compounds recovered from food processing using three approaches: targeting by-products, targeting ingredients, and targeting bioactive applications


Food scientists, technologists, engineers and chemists working in the whole food science field; new product developers, researchers, academics and professionals working in the food industry as well as researchers working on the edge of food and environment. Students studying food engineering, waste management and related topics will also benefit from this reference
