Food by-product valorization: Analysis of phytochemicals, assessment of the accessibility and microbial metabolism (PhytoFoodTec – PhytoAccess)

Objective of the PhytoFoodTec project is to prevent waste, to put food by-products (FBP) back into the food chain and to assess the functionality of processed FBP, the accessibility of bioactives from processed FBP and the influence of processed FBP on the microbiome. Accessibility of phytochemicals is pertinent from a nutritional point of view and these compounds are often metabolically activated during gut passage.
