The objective of this agreement is to develop an enzymatic extraction procedure to preserve the prebiotic active structures in orange peel, conduct in vitro studies (with Bob Rastall) and to confirm prebiotic properties.
ECONUGENICS will provide details on the enzymatic procedure to produce POS from citrus peel. ARS will develop an enzymatic extraction procedure for citrus peel POS that will be produced in the ERRC pilot plant and will perform in vitro prebiotic property analysis in collaboration with Bob Rastall.
