 Microwave assistance is an optimum strategy to shorten time, solvent, and energy consumption during the extraction of target solutes from different sources. This intensification strategy has been successfully applied to laboratory methods to enhance the extraction performance of a number of bioactive compounds of interest for food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. This chapter presents an overview of the fundamentals, equipment configurations, combinations with other techniques, and some representative applications for the extraction of compounds from food products and byproducts.

Keywords: Bioactive compounds, By-products, Biomass, Green extraction, Microwave treatment.
