Abstract

Various groups of functional compounds are present in plants as well as in waste and side streams of bioindustries. The efficient and economically viable valorization of such compounds often depends on the processing of such plants and waste (or side) streams to allow their extraction. In the current chapter, we will shortly present several groups of functional and bioactive compounds of value to the food, pharma, cosmetic and other industries, followed by presenting and comparing the impact of various technologies on their extraction and stability during the processes in comparison to conventional extraction. The chapter will evaluate both fundamental aspects related to the impact of the processing technologies on the structure of the plant matrix and the impact on extraction of both hydrophilic and lipophilic compounds and applicative aspects related to process optimization.
