The aim is the valorization of fruits peels, agricultural residues, as new resources for the production of a natural organic reducing agent for indigo dye. Antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of extracts were measured and total sugar content also was measured.

Fruits peels were extracted in water and total sugar...
