MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents the possibility of using fruit pomace as the management of poor products on sustainable farms. Processing of raw materials in the fruit and vegetable industry involves generation of manufacturing waste, of which pomace that may be processed in different ways, constitutes the highest share. Pomace is most commonly used as fuel in biogas plants, or as feed additives. Despite its high microbial instability, pomace is a great source of numerous bioactive substances.Therefore, it may be used alternatively in the production of granulated fruit and herbal teas.The aim of this paper was to assess the possibility of using fruit pomace in the production of granulated teas with addition of Melissa officinalis. Material used in the study was the agglomeration of dried and fragmented black chokeberry and apple pomace blended with Melissa officinalis. Prepared granules were used to make infusions for which the total polyphenol content, antioxidant activity and sediment amount were determined.
