Spent Brewer's Grain: what is it? what are it’s health benefits? why is it usually wasted?

Spent Brewer's Grain: what is it? what are it’s health benefits? why is it usually wasted?

June 15 2021
Confused about what spent grain is? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Allow us to explain… when producing beer, brewers soak malted barley to give the beer body and flavour. This malted barley is mashed to extract protein, sugar and nutrients. The resulting liquid is used to make beer and the spent grain is left behind. ‘Spent’ indicates that the grain has already been used, meaning it cannot be used in the process to produce more beer. Put simply, it’s the waste leftover after breweries have produced beer.
