DELICIOUS FOODS THAT REDUCE CLIMATE CHANGE.

Every year, approx 16 million kilos of brewery grains are disposed in Ontario.


Traditionally used as animal feed, the majority of these grains end up in landfills, which leads to greenhouse gas emission.

Spent Grain

In the craft brewing process, once barley has been boiled to release sugar, the grains are considered ‘spent’ and disposed of.


Barley is considered one of the healthiest cereal grains and has twice the amount of fibre and protein compared to standard wheat.

What if we made food with spent grains instead?


We could feed every Ontarian 20 loaves of bread every year!
