The aim of this work is to investigate the global chemical characteristics of Tunisian Maltease orange peel and to determine the effect of air temperature (40, 60, 80°C) on phenols and antioxidant activity kinetics of orange peel. Maltease orange peel is rich in nutritional ingredients such as soluble sugars (46.241±0.015 g/100g d.b), proteins (8.120±0.120 g/100g d.b) and minerals (3.170±0.035 g/100g d.b). It contains antioxidant such as phenols (2.685±0.062 g/100 g d.b) and vitamin C (0.105±0…

Morphological and Proximate Analysis of Orange (Citrus scinesis) Peel and Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)

The main objective of the study is to evaluate the nutritional composition of orange peel and tomato for the development of natural colour to increase the awareness about the use of natural food

Utilization of Orange, Banana and Potato Peels versus Their Ethanolic Extracts as Antioxidants in Corn Oil = استخدام قشور البرتقال والموز والبطاطس مقابل مستخلصاتها الكحولية كمضادات أكسدة في زيت الذرة

It was obvious that the peels under study along with their ethanolic extracts exhibited potent antioxidant activity for corn oil, but OP and its extract were superior in terms of lowering peroxide value, ρanisidine value and totox value along with treatment with BHT for oils stored at 60°C for 25 days, as compared to the control oil.

Studies on Formulation and Properties of Fruit Peel Waste Incorporated Edible Film and its Effect on Quality of Bread

Management and the utilization of fruit processing waste are the major concern for food industries. In fruits, the more part is occupied by peels which are discarded as a waste material that has

Effect of Orange Peel Extract or Ascorbic Acid on Growth, Yield and Some Biochemical Aspects of Quinoa Plants under Water Deficit

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the potential of foliar treatment of orange extract (600 & 1200 mg/l) and ascorbic acid (200 & 400mg/l) on growth characters, photosynthetic pigments,

Maximizing the Benefit of Orange Pomace Matouk

A study was carried out to maximize the benefits of orange pomace through different treatments including chopping process at different times (5, 10 and 15 s), pressing using a laboratory scale

Convective drying of orange pomace at different temperatures and characterization of the obtained powders

In the present study drying of orange pomace was carried out at 50, 60 and 70 °Cand drying kinetics was evaluated. The characterization of the orange pomace powder dried at the three different

Pretreatment of citrus by-products affects polyphenol recovery: a review

ABSTRACT A large amount of citrus waste is generated annually. This waste is of great economic worth, since it contains high levels of polyphenols, which have attracted scientific interest due to



Effects of drying temperature on the flavonoid, phenolic acid and antioxidative capacities of the methanol extract of citrus fruit (Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck) peels

Summary There are many active functional compounds in citrus peels, such as flavonoid and phenolic acid. Scientists tried to obtain more bioactive components from citrus peels by various methods.

Effect of Infrared Drying on Drying Kinetics, Color, Total Phenols and Water and Oil Holding Capacities of Orange (Citrus Sinensis) Peel and Leaves

The aims of this work were to determine the desorption isotherms of “Maltaise” orange peel and leaves and to investigate the effect of the infrared drying on the drying kinetics and on the physical

Kinetics of Polyphenol Losses During Soaking and Drying of Cider Apples

A regular consumption of fresh or processed fruits can contribute to preventing cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Polyphenols, which are naturally present in fresh apples (Malus x domestica), are

Antioxidant activity, phenol and flavonoid contents of 13 citrus species peels and tissues.

Methanolic extracts of 13 commercially available citrus spp., peels and tissues growing in Iran were investigated for their antioxidant activity by DPPH method. IC50 for antioxidant activity ranged
