Bioeconomy and Nutrition – Brewers Spent Grain
Biomass and Grain
The EU EIT Climate-KIC project, named Brewers Spent Grain (BSG 2.0), looked at plant-based meat and dairy alternatives for a more sustainable source of proteins. BSG, taken as a side-stream from brewing industry, is used in the project as the starting material. In this multi-partners’ collaboration, with international universities and industries, NatPro carried out analysis of unfermented and fermented BSG, yoghurt and Soya drink samples to define their chemical fingerprints using metabolomic techniques.
