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.
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.
