Abstract

This paper assesses the environmental profile of the biscuit supply chain for producing high quality gluten-free biscuits. Three different types of biscuits were considered. The assessment followed a cradle-to-grave approach applying the ISO standards in compliance with the Product Category Rules (PCR) defined within EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for bakery products. Analogous environmental profiles were implemented for assessing the products: It was found that the main hotspot in all impact categories was ingredients production with the range contribution from 22.2% to 84.9%, followed by transportation. Initial hypotheses for ingredients origin and waste management practices were demonstrated to have a key influence on the environmental results: higher packaging recycling rates and local ingredients usage led to improved environmental results (up to 5.5%) while direct food waste disposal was responsible for slightly unfavourable performance relative to base case (below 1%). Additionally, healthier ingredients such as xylitol and fructose were used to evaluate their potential benefits from an environmental perspective. It was found that only the use of fructose was a suitable alternative sweetener for more sustainable production.

Abstract

Nonisothermal autohydrolysis treatments of vine shoots were used as a method for hemicellulose solubilization and xylooligosaccharides (XOS) production. The proposed kinetic model allowed the selection of the operational conditions that maximize the oligosaccharides content and minimize the generation of undesired compounds such as monosaccharides and sugar-decomposition products. In this sense, the maximum value of XOS (9.9 g/100 g raw material) was obtained at 200 °C. The liquid fraction containing oligosaccharides was highly stable against heat and pH (degradation below 10%), demonstrating its potential as functional food ingredients. On the other hand, the cellulose-enriched solid fraction was subjected to enzymatic digestibility, obtaining 49.5% of total glucan hydrolysis after 96 h. In this work, the holistic use of wine shoots following a biorefinery concept has been proposed. However, a delignification step of the cellulose-enriched solid fraction should be included in order to increase the enzymatic digestibility, and hence allow the integral use of this byproduct.
