Anheuser-Busch InBev’s Spent Grains Being Upcycled into Novel Proteins

As the largest beer producer in the world, Anheuser Busch In-Bev has been exploring ways to create new market opportunities for spent grains in recent years.

The company launched EverGrain to upcycle its spent grains from its brewing process in order to reduce food waste and its carbon footprint. The result is EverPro - the first commercially available barley protein in the world, which the company explained is more sustainable than other plant-based proteins on the market since it emits fewer emissions and requires less land and water.

In 2021, EverGrain upcycled more than 500,000 pounds of spent beer grain into plant-based milk - something that Molson Coors has also done through its launch of Golden Wing barley milk last year.

Now, Missouri-based provider of ingredients and ingredient systems, Osage Foods, has launched six protein blends with EverPro being a key ingredient in its SolvPro 008 and 009 systems. In combination with pea protein isolate and added masking agents, EverPro is a key ingredient in these new systems that deliver a complete plant protein with adequate levels of all essential amino acids and delivering a protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1.0 - equivalent to whey protein.
