Abstract
In this contribution, the influence of Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) of different intensities (3–9 kV/cm and 0–300 µs) on the extraction of Total Phenols from lemon peel residues by pressing was investigated. According to the cellular disintegration index, the optimum treatment time for the increase in permeability was determined as 30 pulses of 30 µs. It was determined that the effect of PEF was independent of lemon residue size. The effectiveness of pressing-assisted extraction was evalua...
