Currently, by-products produced from the agro-industries practices could be a key source of functional and bioactive components; which could be used due to their nutritional and added-value properties. New aspects concerning the use of these wastes as by-products in production of food additives or supplements have recently gained increasing interest. In this sense, the present study describes thorough characterization of phytochemicals from methanolic extract of broad beans pods by using

The utilized analytical technique provided the tentative identification more than 140 phenolic and other phytochemical compounds in the extract, most of which have not been described up to now in broad beans pods. Thus, more than 90 phytochemicals (phenolic acids, flavonoids, iridoids, lignans, and terpenoids derivatives) are reported herein in broad beans pods for the first time. The data obtained demonstrate that vegetal by-product from the food industry could potentially be utilized as a promising source of bioactive ingredients to design new nutraceuticals and functional foods with a valued future market.
