Abstract

Pinus pinaster (pine) bark is a widely available wood industry by-product but an underexploited source of phenolic compounds with a strong antioxidant activity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of ohmic heating (OH, a recognized eco-friendly, electric fields-based processing technology) for the sustainable recovery of phenolic compounds from Pinus pinaster bark. Results of OH evidenced increased extraction of antioxidant phenolic compounds with no degradation of pine bark extracts for all tested conditions. Moreover, the enhancement in phenolic content in OH-assisted ext ...
