Robust treatment

Life Science

Pineapple peel is good for fish health, while domestic food waste can be made into chicken feed.

Now, a food science research team from Cornell has discovered that an apple a day not only keeps doctors away from humans, but also benefits chickens.

Their focus is on pomace, the fibrous waste produced when apples are pressed. It contains enough amino acids and iron to support good gut bacteria.

Chickens from eggs that were injected in vivo with apple juice and pomace proved more robust in comparison with untreated eggs.

In the USA alone, the discovery could prevent 175,350 metric tons of apple waste from being discarded, reducing CO2 emissions in landfill sites.

Btw, Apple waste can be inspiring.
