From potato by-product to superfood

General objectives

The potato was already introduced in Europe already in the 16th century. So it's a keeper, in part thanks to its nutritional value. Potatoes not only provide energy in the form of complex carbohydrates (starch), but they also contain essential nutrients such as fibre, high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. They are also present in the by-products from the potato processing industry, which creates possibilities for upgrading them to the highest possible level. Considering their nutritional value, we can aspire to ‘superfood’ applications. Various processing techniques, from simple to complex, may be suitable. Various components can also be recuperated from potato processing water. Innovative separation and extraction technologies open up new possibilities.
With this concept, through research and development we want to get the most out of the potato processing by-products in a financially responsible and sustainable manner, preferably for food applications.
