Project description

In Indonesia, a high amount of fruit by-products is available, which can be valorized in terms of several micro-nutrients, fibre and phenolic compounds. In this project, it will aimed to obtain extracts rich in phenolic compounds of different fruit by-products streams by the use of lactic acid fermentation. Furthefmore, screening towards bio-activity of these phenolic rich extracts will be performed.
