Ahuti Patel, Sushant Temgire and Anjan Borah
Processing of horticultural goods produces a large amount of waste. Huge waste and losses in the food and processing industries are facing economic losses and environmental problems. Agro-industries byproducts can serve as important raw material for development of value added food products. The byproducts from fruits and vegetables can be used as unconventional alternate feed for animals which have best source of digestible nutrients and fulfill the gaps between demand and supply of feedstuffs. It is also used as food additives for formulation of nuetraceuticals, pharmaceutical and other functional food. Other agricultural byproducts from cereals and plantation crops are can be utilized as organic residues and processing byproducts for valorization of waste by converting it into most useful products. The use of bioactive compounds extracted from by-products are an important step towards sustainable development. In order to produce value-added products, the use of these low-cost horticultural waste is a novel step in sustainable development.
