Annually, massive amounts of wastes result after the processing of the raw materials from food industry. Therefore, the wastes resulting from the baking industry represent an important resource for valorization in order to obtain various compounds with industrial applications. In this work, several sustainable practices for bread wastes valorization into organic acids, alcohols, hydrogen and hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) are presented. Moreover, the process forenzymes or bakery ingredients production involving bread wastes will be also discussed. The proposed solutions for an intelligent valorization of bread wastes have a sustainable contribution towards the reduction of food wastes and their environmental impact.
