Abstract: Tropical fruits represent one of the most important crops in the world. The continuously growing global market for the main tropical fruits is currently estimated at 84 million tons, of which approximately half is lost or wasted throughout the whole processing chain. Developing novel processes for the conversion of these byproducts into value‐added products could provide a viable way to manage this waste problem, aiming at the same time to create a sustainable economic growth within a bio‐economy perspective. … Show more

“…Seeds of fruit tree species often represent an important by-product of juice/jam food industries, as well as a relevant source of phytochemicals [72]. This is the case of limonoids in Citrus species [73], and of secoiridoids in Olea species [74].…”

“…This is the case of limonoids in Citrus species [73], and of secoiridoids in Olea species [74]. In the last decade, many utilizations were proposed to add value to these agricultural by-products, including the possibility to use them for nutritional purposes [72,75]. The direct consumption of seeds is not possible in many cases, since they are coriaceous, and/or bitter and astringent.…”

“…However, the use of camu‐camu seeds is virtually nonexistent. Considering the amount of seeds generated in South America and their bioactivity, it is possible to incentivize their industrial processing, thus, avoiding losses and contributing to the circular economy engagement in the fruit processing sector (Dzah, Duan, Zhang, Boateng, & Ma, 2020; Fidelis et al., 2019; Villacís‐Chiriboga, van Camp, Vera, & Ruales, 2020).…”

“…However, variation in concentration of metabolites in different fruit parts is highly dependent on varieties, environment, and management practices, [10] though previous studies suggested that concentration of metabolites is higher in discarded fractions with marked differences than edible parts. [35] Peel and seed are considered to hold a higher concentration of metabolites than the pulp with a considerable fraction of phenolic compounds, polysaccharides, and tyrosinase inhibitors. [10,34] Longan seed extract has the highest level of phenolic compounds compared to dried flesh.…”
