Towards By-Product Utilisation of Pea Hulls: Isolation and Quantification of Galacturonic Acid

Gutöhrlein, Friederike ; Drusch, Stephan ; Schalow, Sebastian (2018-12-10)

In order to evaluate by-products from food processing as alternative raw materials for pectin extraction, their amount of galacturonic acid (GalA) has to be analysed as a marker for pectin content. In the present study, significant differences in GalA release using different digestion methods are shown for pea hulls, as an example of by-products with a high content of cellulose. Complete digest...
