Buckwheat husk processing products as Factor of a Stable Food Market Development
Ural State University of Economics, 620144, 8 Marta Str., 62, Ekaterinburg, Russia
The current state of the economy requires a qualitatively new organization of the region’s food market. The development of regional food markets should be based primarily on a fuller use of local raw materials. The most important task in the development of the regional food market is the search for new sources of natural biologically active substances and the development of functional food products based on them. Melanin is a unique biologically active substance with inhibitory, protective, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effects. The main plant sources of melanin are chaga, birch mushroom and sunflower husk, the use of which is not always advisable and economically profitable. It is advisable to consider buckwheat husk Fagopyrumesculentum, which is characterized by the absence of ballast fraction and a high content of brown pigment localized in the outer layers of the cellular wall of the entire grain shell, as a promising raw material source for the isolation of melanin. The biochemical characteristics of melanin from alternative raw sources require a more detailed study of the properties of the pigment, in particular the functional ones, to confirm the practical possibility of using them as functional food ingredients in food products - antioxidants and biosorbents-detoxifying agents.
