Spent Grain Bread that’s also good for you - it's nutritious, healthier for you and the planet.
This is a project by The Spent Goods Company who learned about how 6 Billion pounds worth of spent grains ends up in the landfill (US) every year.
That's the equivalent of being able to feed every person a loaf of bread every week for almost 1 year.
While larger breweries divert their grains as animal feed, urban craft breweries produce too little in comparison to financially justify pickup or deliveries to nearby farmers.
With craft breweries growing 25% every year in Ontario, The Spent Goods Company is working with forward-thinking businesses to find a win-win situation for all.
So we diverted spent barley grains from landfill and made a delicious, organic sourdough bread instead.
It's Healthy for you!
