Jayati Pal Chattopadhyay, Aditi Roy Chowdhury

ABSTRACT Approximately 30 % of fruits and vegetables are getting wasted each year in country like India. Not only that, there is a huge loss of agro based commodity during industrial processing and will be considered as industry generated waste. Utilization of such unexplored nutrients from agro processing sectors for making a sustainable food system will be a healthy approach to bring food security and nutrition to all of us. With this aim the present work addresses the utilization of jackfruit seeds, an agro-waste, to value added products. Jackfruit seed flour has a great potential in new food formulation along with wheat flour. The 15% (w/w) blending of jackfruit seed flour with wheat flour could be used in bread and the substituted bread is protein and fibre enriched. This attempt in developing such bakery items with blended flours could address the scarcity problem of non-wheat producing countries. Present study also looks into the alternate source of starch from spice processing industries. The nutrient starch could be explored for isolation from a nonconventional source from turmeric processing sector. The isolated starch could also be modified to enhance some of its functional properties and may be utilized in preparing value added product with a better acceptability and nutrition.Thus, the isolation of nutrients and value-added products out of fruits and vegetables and spice-processing waste would be a stepping stone to an initiative to zero hunger.

ABSTRACT The commencement of the 21st century has endorsed an extended requirement for safe and wholesome food. The fact is that consumer preferences, awareness and their concern towards food safety have been tremendously increased. Therefore, inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms through any treatment becomes essential for food processors to ensure that food is free from disease causing microorganisms and parallelly unaltered with respect to its organoleptic, functional and nourishing characteristic. Food industries predominantly adopt thermal inputs for the preservation of food. Thermal methods, however, lead to unfavourable changes in organoleptic and nutritional attributes, more particularly proteins and vitamins. Hence, there has been continuous development and advances in finding alternatives to conventional processing. Cold plasma technology is one such technique. Plasma can be defined as a quasi-neutral ionised gas and is more commonly termed as 4th state of matter. Advances in plasma engineering have made it possible to generate plasma at atmospheric pressure which ultimately resulted in broadening the spectra of research on cold plasma at various interfaces of biological sciences. This chapter summarises the overview of cold plasma technology processing, numerous findings related to its application in the area of food decontamination, food fortification, seed germination, milk and milk products and modification of starches.
