NETZRO Spent Grain Upcycling
It’s time-consuming and challenging for sustainably minded brewers and distillers to provide their spent grain to farmers for animal feed. Many breweries produce far more than the farmers can use and much of it ends up going to waste. NETZRO saw this problem as an opportunity — to rescue and restore this grain..
Today, NETZRO is working with award-winning craft distillery, Tattersall Distilling, known for its sustainable practices. Tons of nutrient-rich, spent rye & corn grains are rescued by NETZRO every week. During the distilling process the sugars are extracted, then using NETZRO proprietary technology, the spent grains are restored leaving behind the nutritious fiber and protein. This marks the first time that upcycled grain from a distillery will be made commercially available as edible ingredients. NETZRO is currently also reclaiming and processing spent grain from various breweries throughout the Twin Cities of Minnesota.
Wholesalers, retailers, restaurants and consumers can purchase upcycled ingredients directly from NETZRO. For each pound sold, Tattersall and NETZRO donate proceeds to The Artisan Grain Collaborative to promote a regenerative food system. Buyers can be assured that NETZRO is socially responsible, sharing profits with farmers in order to promote land stewardship.
NETZRO is working with several Minnesota craft breweries including; Modist Brewing Co, Indeed Brewing Company, Dual Citizen Brewing Company, Utepils Brewing, Invictus Brewing Co., HammerHeart Brewing Co. and others.
NETZRO is a woman-owned Specific Benefit Corporation based in Minnesota
