Abstract: Cranberry, a berry rich in phenolic compounds as anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, has many beneficial effects on human health. To consume raw cranberry juice is a way to benefit from them, but that product presents a lack of palatability and can cause some side effects. To limit those inconveniences, raw juice can be deacidified and among all methods currently available, electrodialysis with bipolar membranes is very promising. Until now, essays to deacidify cranberry juice by electrodialysis with bipolar membranes were performed on laboratory scale cells using a fresh recovery solution from a deacidification essay to another. The aim of this work was to test the process on a larger scale for a longer period of time and to improve it by reusing the same recovery solution. Deacidification essays were performed in batch for a total of 95 hours on a semi-industrial cell and there was no major impact on the system global resistance. Furthermore, reusing the same recovery solution had no effect on the physicochemical properties of the deacidified juice, and energy savings up to 42.9% were recorded while the amount of waste produced was reduced. These positive results suggest the possibility to transfer the process at larger scale. Therefore, the next logical step for this project would be to scale-up the technology in factories for the industrial production of deacidified cranberry juice.
