Pineapple waste utilization: Wealth from waste

Muskan Gupta
Waste utilization in the fruit and vegetable processing industries is a crucial and challenging job across the world. Because waste from the fruit and vegetable industries is produced in enormous amounts, it contains high lignocellulose, fibre, sugar, and bioactive and useful compounds. The food industry can use these fruit wastes in a variety of ways, including fermentation, drying, and extraction of bioactive and useful chemicals. Using food waste is not limited to one or two products; if used properly, one can obtain a variety of products such as essential oils, ointments, herbal drinks, energy bars, and so on, which will not only promote good health and nutrition to a human body but will also help in generating zero waste. Researchers have concentrated on using pineapple waste for two purposes: first, to extract bromelain, and second, to produce ethanol, phenolic antioxidants, heavy metal, organic acids, biogas, fibre production, and organic acid at a low cost with the help of methods such as fermentation, drying etc. With the help of scientific and technological advancements, a better and more profitable market for pineapple waste may be created.
