FoodWasteEXplorer is a tool for those exploring how food waste might be better used, e.g. citrus peel limonene can be used to make medical plastic. Potentially, a fruit juice producer could use FoodWasteEXplorer to identify this and start the process towards alternative uses.
Currently, the FoodWasteEXplorer contains ca. 27069 data points, representing 587 nutrients, 698 bioactives and 49 toxicants, collected from a variety of sources, including scientific (peer-reviewed) papers, manufacturers’ data (grey literature) and other data sources. This work is on-going, and more data will be added with time.
