With the growing population and changing diet habits, the production and processing of horticultural crops, especially fruits and vegetables, have increased very significantly to fulfill the increasing demands. Significant losses and waste in the fresh and processing industries are becoming a serious nutritional, economical, and environmental problem. For example, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has estimated that losses and waste in fruits and vegetables are the highest among all types of foods, and may reach up to 60%. The processing operations of fruits and vegetables produce significant wastes of by-products, which constitute about 25% to 30% of a whole commodity group. The waste is composed mainly of seed, skin, rind, and pomace, containing good sources of potentially valuable bioactive compounds, such as carotenoids, polyphenols, dietary fibers, vitamins, enzymes, and oils, among others.
Higher production and growth, and the lack of proper handling methods and infrastructure, have led to huge losses and waste of these important food commodities, as well as their components and by-products and residues. For example, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has estimated that at least one-third of the food produced in the world (estimated as 1.3 billion metric tons) is lost and wasted every year (FAO 2014), and losses and waste of horticultural commodities are the highest among all types of foods, reaching up to 60%. Losses and waste occur during all phases of the supply and handling chain, including during harvesting, transport to packinghouses or markets, classification and grading, storage, marketing, processing, and at home before or after preparation. Losses occur throughout the supply chain from production throughout all postharvest stages before consumption.
Based on the fruit type, the fruit seed waste market has been segmented into citrus fruits, lime, grapes, and oranges. The citrus fruit segmented is anticipated to gain substantial market share over the forecast timeline. Citrus waste is a rich source of phenolic compounds because the citrus peel contains a higher quantity of polyphenols in comparison with the edible part of the fruit. Apart from citrus, the peels of other fruits have also been found to contain higher concentrations of phenolics compared with the edible portions. It has been found that double amounts of total phenolics in the peels of apples, peaches, and pears compared to peeled fruits. Pomegranate peels contain 249.4 mg/g phenolic compounds, while the pulp contains 24.4 mg/g. Apple peels were reported to have up to 3300 mg/100 g DM of phenolic content. Grape skins and seeds, by-products of the juice and wine industries, are also rich sources of mono-, oligo-, and polymeric proanthocyanidins (phenolics).
In terms of tropical & exotic fruits, the fruit seed waste market has been classified into banana and mango. It was reported that banana pulp contains 232 mg/100 g DM of phenolic compounds, which is only about 25% of that found in the peel. Along with phenolic compounds, higher amounts of catecholamines, dopamine, and l-dopa were also found in banana peels.. 80 to 90 percent of citrus wastes are converted into usable products, such as dried pulp, molasses, pectin, essential oils, brined peel, citric acid, limonene, feed yeast, and biologically active materials. Citrus seeds are a source of food oils. Some seed oil was produced in Florida in the late 1930s, but operations were suspended until 1946. During the 1948-49 season the estimated oil recovery was between 300 and 400 tons in Florida. The potential supply from wastes from Florida citrus canneries is estimated at more than 5,000 tons. Some varieties of citrus fruit, such as the navel orange and the Marsh seedless grapefruit, have few seeds, but others, the Seedling orange and Duncan grapefruit, for example, contain many.
Some key players in operating in the fruit seed waste market are Kingsley Beverages, PepsiCo, ITC Limited, Welch’s, and Coca Cola Company.
