At Biograin, it is our vision to contribute to global health and the green transition

To that end, we have developed a method to deliver wet spent grain from beer production directly for food production, turning it from a waste product to a great and nutritious food supplement.

Our product, Biograin, is not created by climate-damaging and energy-intensive drying processes.

Biograin is the first to have developed and patented a spent grain product for the food industry.

All our spent grain is delivered sustainably.

Sustainable plant proteins and fibres

Starch free!

Eating spent grain gives you a number of nutritional and physiological benefits, as it has a high dietary fibre content that promotes our gastrointestinal function and a high content of oils and minerals that are important for the body's structure.

In addition, spent grain has a high protein content that can replace a significant part of our animal protein intake. As a side benefit, it is gluten-free and starch-free.

For every 100 litres of beer, breweries are left with about 20 kg of spent grain

One of the by-products from brewing beer, spent grain is the remains of malting barley, after breweries have extracted the desired amount of starch for production. The spent grain is rich in fibres and minerals.

It is estimated that breweries worldwide dispose of more than 40 million tonnes per year, in different ways from brewery to brewery and from country to country.

In many parts of the world it is discarded as waste, but in some countries like Denmark, most of it is typically used for animal feed.

Spent grain is one of the food industry's most lucrative by-products.

We get the most out of spent grain, with the lowest use of energy

We do this by, among other things, using the spent grain wet, as well as stabilising it against pathogenic bacteria from start to finish.

Biograin is the natural and most climate-friendly choice.
