EverGrain (St. Louis), an AB InBev company, has established a new scientific advisory board to unlock the full potential of its brewers spent grain and its benefits for human health and environmental sustainability. The advisory board will be composed of five scientists from leading universities in food, nutrition and health, agriculture, and environmental sciences, who will advise and collaborate with the EverGrain R&D team to accelerate the use of BSG’s uniquely sustainable plant-based proteins and fibers in nutrient-rich, low carbon foods and beverages.
The board will include:
The scientific advisory board will be led by EverGrain’s global head of R&D Steffen Münch and Dr. Harold Schmitz, PhD, ESAB Chair and senior scholar in the Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis.
“We at EverGrain consider upcycled BSG as one of the most sustainable protein sources on Earth because it delivers high quality nutrition with a very low carbon impact,” said Münch, in a press release. “Until now, BSG has gone to animal feed or simply been thrown away, so we are excited and privileged to team up with such talented scientists to increase the health and sustainability impact of this untapped super grain.”
“Being an ingredient company within one of the world’s largest brewing companies gives us the capability to scale production of upcycled barley grain – what we at EverGrain affectionately call ‘saved’ grain – around the globe,” added Gregory Belt, EverGrain CEO. “Adding some of the world’s best and brightest scientific minds to the process will accelerate our goal of helping to nourish a growing population while overcoming the resource challenges caused by climate change.”
