Alice Coutinho GOULARTE, Cristiane CAPELLO, Germán Ayala VALENCIA. Recovery of Chlorophylls from Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) Peel Using a Synthetic Layered Silicate; Recent Advances in Food Science; 2020; 3(2): 323-331

Cucumber peel has high amounts of chlorophylls (Chl), a natural pigment. However, the valorization of this agri-food waste has been little explored. The present work aims to develop and characterize biohybrids (BH) based on Chl from cucumber peel and laponite® (Lap). Chl from acidified juice (pH = 1) were completely recovered using Lap at 20°C. […]
