Written by Dr. Wendy Bazilian, a registered dietitian and exercise physiologist certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, the “Upcycled Barley Nutrition Compendium [provides] an in-depth review of upcycled barley, detailing how it shapes up versus other plant and animal proteins available at scale today,” the company’s press release states.

“Barley has ancient roots as a life-giving food, but it’s also at the heart of one of the world’s favorite beverages: beer,” EverGrain Founder and CEO Greg Belt said. “This report highlights the nutrient-rich history of this ingredient and how upcycling barley is such a critical opportunity to reshape the future of food. It’s an opportunity for brands to leverage the many benefits of barley in the stories they share with their consumers.”

The company says in vivo and in vitro studies have shown that EverPro barley protein offers protein digestibility and absorption comparable to pea and whey protein.
