Agrofood LIGNOcelullosic waste valorization

to XyloOligoSaccharides functional ingredient

XOS, A PREBIOTIC COMPOUND OF HIGH ADDED VALUE

The project aims at obtaining organic XOS through a sustainable process

that protects both the environment ant the health of the conscious consumer.

What's the LIGNOXOS project?

There's an increasing health-care spending in the EU linked to problems related to a low fibre intake and poor diets. Besides, millions of tonnes of agro-food waste are produced in the EU each year, which represent a big environmental problem. The LIGNOXOS project has detected an opporunity for up-cycling the abundant ligno-cellulosic agro-food waste into valuable prebiotic ingredients (XOS) for the consumers' needs of managing their gut health.
