Delicious, but our opinion may be biased. Everyone describes it differently and the different baked goods showcase Susgrainable flour differently. The best way to understand what we mean is to try it for yourself. We promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Is spent grain safe to eat?
Not only is it safe to eat, it is incredibly healthy since most Canadians do not even get half the recommended daily fibre intake. However, the grains do need to be dried very quickly for them to remain safe for human consumption.
What is Spent Grain?
Spent Grain is a by-product of the brewing industry. Most often, it is barley with the sugars removed during the production of beer. This process leaves behind wet spent grain, which is high in fibre and plant-based protein while being low in sugar.
Are your products gluten-free?
Our products are low in gluten. Barley is a low gluten alternative to wheat. Additionally, the processing of the barley to extract the sugar may alter or change the gluten content as well. We have had several people with gluten intolerances exclaim that they have been able to enjoy our cookies without any reactions. We recommend introducing it slowly if you have an intolerance as nutrition can be very personalized.
Does spent grain contain alcohol?
No. Spent grain is produced before the fermentation process leaving it alcohol free. The only buzz you will feel is from the internal feeling of eating something good for your body.
Why is fibre important?
It helps regulate digestion and blood sugar levels. This can be incredibly helpful in preventing several chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

Can I buy the flour?
We are currently exploring this process. It feels wrong to solve food waste to only create packaging waste, which will remain long after we are gone. We hope to have a solution to this soon. Feel free to contact us if you have a sustainable packaging solution or are an avid baker who really cannot wait to try out our flour. We will gladly work with you to get you some!
