Upcycled Grain Project, the sustainability initiative of a snack brand Rutherford & Meyer, has created upcycled grain crisps – vegan-friendly snacks from waste left over from the beer-brewing processes.
This project aims to turn “spent” grain into beautiful, golden crisps in keeping with the original premise that “no material gets left behind, only delicious, healthy crackers that do their part to reduce food waste”.
The project has mixed wheat grain with other natural ingredients, including at least 26 per cent real fruit, to create healthy snacks without using any new resources.
In addition, the product provides customers with adequate nutrition because the rescued grain is packed with fibre and protein, added vitamins and amino-acids. All crisps are vegan-friendly, GMO-free and 100 per cent natural.
Upcycled grain crisps will be available at selected Woolworths supermarkets in Australia in four flavours: Raisin and Rosemary, Orange and Sesame, Cranberry and Coconut, and Fig and Cardamom.
