Some examples of upcycling for human food
- Orange peel: A large number of products suitable for diets with special needs can be obtained from orange peel (meat products with adapted texture for senior consumers, alternative proteins for biscuits made without eggs or milk), enriched foods (purees and sauces with fibre instead of fat, gluten-free but fibre-enriched muffins and biscuits, fibre-enriched orange juice).
- Whey: With the whey left over from cheese making (rich in protein, B vitamins) we have made cheese spread or whey drink with fruit juice, high in protein and low in sodium and fat.
