Too Good to Waste!
What is upcycled food?
There are many different products that are being upcycled and many more that can be.
Some currently being used are:
Spent grain from breweries and distilleries
Fruit pulp from juice bars
Whey protein from cheese producers
Aquafaba from chickpea production
Okara - a soymilk by-product
Welcome to the new
What was once seen as the end of the food supply chain, is now becoming the start of a new food revolution. From local brewers to large scale food manufacturers, to bakers and top chefs, everyone is looking for alternative ways to reduce waste, advance sustainability, and ideally maximize the value in all aspects of their food production process.
This podcast series explores that fast-growing trend of upcycling food by-products that often go into landfills or to farmers for animal feed.
