|Title:||Fruit and Fumigants|
|Abstract:||Fruit- In agricultural areas, crops such as grapes and olives generate huge amounts of by-products. Millions of tonnes of grapes are processed by the..wine industry. An estimated 13% of processed grapes correspond to the by-product after pressing,consisting mainly of skins and seeds. Grape skins and seeds are rich sources of health-promoting polyphenols, including tlavan-3-0Is of different degrees of polymerization known as proanthocyanidins.
Fumigants- The antibacterial and antifungal activity of many plant extracts and essential oils is well known. The essential oil turns into fumes when the plant material is burnt. These fumes have long been used in traditional practices for curing diseases and protection from insects and pests.
