GABRIELA PLOSCUTANU, ALINA MIHAELA ELISEI, OLIMPIA DUMITRIU BUZIA NUTRACEUTICAL PROPERTIES OF APPLES AND DERIVED PRODUCTS (POMACE, SEEDS, PEELS)
Because of multiple benefits for human health, apple polyphenols have attracted significant attention in the scientific field. This review is a compilation of the polyphenolic profile of apple and apple derived products. This approach may represent an environment-friendly alternative for the revalorization of the apples derived products, generated in excessive amounts by the industrial production of juice, ciders, vinegar. In conclusion, our results demonstrate that the total phenolic content varies considerably in fresh apples and products resulted from their processing, influencing their nutraceutical properties.
