In order to combat agricultural waste sustainably, this invention demonstrates how the inedible portions of fruits and vegetables can be converted to fiber, protein, and micronutrient-rich powder (flour) by using kale and collards as examples. The resulting powder (flour) is a sugar-free source of dietary fiber (50-60%), a rich source of proteins (15-25%), and mineral and vitamin micronutrients (10-15%).
