Title: Principles for Developing a Safe and Sustainable Valorization of Food Waste for Animal Feed: Second Generation Feedstuff
Authors: San Martin, David; Bald, Carlos; Cebrian, Marta; Inarra, Bruno; Orive, Mikel; Ramos, Saioa; Zufia, Jaime
Abstract: Developed countries are producing and consuming more food than needed, which generates a significant amount of food waste. Within this framework, three main strategies have been proposed to control this food wastage: reduction, reuse, and recycle. In the hierarchy of valorization options for any food waste, the reuse for human food or ingredient has to be prioritized, however, due to technical requirements; this option could not be always implemented. The use of food wastes as a second generation feedstuff is an interesting option to many food sectors since it could reduce land use competition, the dependence on the current feed raw materials, the cost of animal feed, as well as the environmental impact associated to its production. However, the feasibility of this option depends on several legal, technical, and economical requirements as well as environmental and social sustainability conditions. In addition, this valorization alternative demands some treatments in order to stabilize and preserve effectively.
