PowerFlour - A unique, healthy and sustainable flour derived from the largest residue stream of the beer brewing process

PowerFlour aims to create a world where food waste is not seen as the end, but as a new beginning. PowerFlour aims to to help achieve this by creating sustainable and healthy food products from food waste. The first food waste stream focused on is beer grain (officially known as Brewer's Spent Grains, BSG). Every year, 560 kton of beer grain is produced in the Netherlands alone. The majority of these grains are currently fed to milk cattle. But beer grain is still incredibly tasty and contains valuable nutrients, such as protein, fibre and amino acids. This is why MaGie Creations collects beer grain from breweries and convert it into PowerFlour: a significantly more sustainable and healthy flour compared to traditional flour.
