Sustainable ingredients company, EverGrain, has now launched its nutrient-rich barley ingredients with the backing of AB InBev.
EverGrain utilises saved grain from brewing and transforms the barley into protein and fibre-based ingredients, enabling them to be used in a variety of food and beverage products.
After five years of R&D, the team – with support from AB InBev – is now ready to showcase its range of barley ingredients and products.
“Our unique barley ingredients will transform plant-based products, delivering better tasting and more nutritious options to consumers who seek a healthier and more sustainable future,” said founder and CEO of EverGrain, Greg Belt.
“EverGrain’s innovative and circular approach, which we’ve honed over the past five years, offers a scalable, local and reliable solution for the global food industry to help address the world’s food security and sustainability challenges,” Belt continued.
By committing to a circular economy, EverGrain hopes to partner with some of the world’s leading organisations to encourage and support them to turn barley into an essential ingredient.
“AB InBev is proud to support such a remarkable, purpose-driven venture with a mission to create incredible ingredients to nourish the world through the transformative power of circularity,” added Tony Milikin, chief sustainability and procurement officer, AB InBev. “EverGrain marks an important milestone in our ultimate goal of building a better world as we look to the next 100 years and beyond.”
With this launch, the ingredients company will commercialise its first-generation of ancient-grain products to market, EverPro and EverVita.
EverGrain ingredients can be found in products such as Take Two plant-based barley milk, with product launches planned in the US and Europe in the first quarter fiscal year 2021.
