Upcycled Baking Mixes & Barley Flour

The Susgrainable Story

Did you know that 450,000 tons of spent grain are disposed in Canada every year?

Arguably, breweries have been throwing away the healthiest part of the grain for years. Spent grain is packed full of fibre, protein, and minerals.

That’s where we step in...
At the heart of it, we rescue spent grain from breweries before it reaches landfills, and transform it into delicious baking mixes your whole family can enjoy. Our Upcycled Barley flour is at the root of our high-fibre, low sugar treats.

Established to combat food waste and champion healthier diets, our vision is to create a way for people to benefit from the “whole” grain- in a healthy and delicious way.

Big Ideas Guy Meets Logistical Wizard

After sampling their cookies at their first Vancouver Farmers’ Market in 2018, they knew they were onto something.

Six weeks later, they were hiring a baker to keep up with their demand.

Susgrainable's Production Process

How do we get from beer waste to banana bread?

Extraction Icon

1. Extraction

Malted barley in the brewing industry is steeped in water to extract all the sugars but the rest of the grain is left behind.

Collection Icon

2. Collection

As soon as brewing is complete, we collect the brewer's spent grain (BSG) and send them for processing.

Processing Icon

3. Processing

We process the grains into a nutritious, versatile, and low gluten flour, the key ingredient in our baking mixes.
