Every year nearly six billion pounds of spent grain – malted barley are discarded as waste after the brewing process in the USA.
Veggie Vita has made it our mission to Up-Cycle that waste and incorporate it into our crust, along with our olive oil and honey blend, to give you a one of a kind taste while helping reduce waste!
What is Spent Grain – Malted Barley?
Spent Grain – Malted Barley, is created during the brewing process. As the Sugar is removed from the grain, the levels of protein and fiber increase, creating heath-promoted nutrients. This spent grain is normally thrown away and considered waste after production, but we have found a way to incorporate that by-product, along with our olive oil and honey blend, to support the Up-Cycled food movement!
