Prumbs-geredde aardappelschillen 

Prumbs is het eerste voedingsproduct gemaakt van geredde aardappelschillen.

SavFood is a startup that combats food waste by developing innovative products from residual flows from the food processing industry. Potatoes, for example, generate an estimated 1 million tons of waste per year in the Netherlands. In Rotterdam alone, 384 tons of potato peel waste per year is generated by a single processor. Most of these peels go to a biogas incinerator or the animal feed industry. However, potato skins are highly nutritious and a source of fiber. After researching the flow, we came up with two product ideas.

Our first product is Prumbs, a circular, high fiber and gluten free alternative to coating products such as breadcrumbs, the first samples have already been made and tested with selected companies. We have found a number of companies interested in our product, including large-scale snack manufacturers. Our second product is a fiber supplement, also made from the same residual flow. Our goal was to come up with a valuable reuse of this stream and to minimize waste from processing. We are currently looking at various food processing flows. If we succeed in bringing our first product to market, thousands of tons of waste can be used in an efficient, nutritious and valuable way.
