Take Two Barleymilk has Hopped on the Upcycle Movement

0

It isn’t just about nutrition anymore. Now dairy-free milk producers must also compete on sustainability, and Take Two Barleymilk is a solid contender. Each bottle of their plant-based milk uses a pound of spent grain from commercial beer production, which saves approximately 99 gallons of water. Consequently, Take Two outperforms dairy and many dairy-free milks in GHG emissions, water usage, energy usage, and land usage.

Take Two Barleymilk has Hopped on the Upcycle Movement

This Portland, Oregon company uses barley from a global network of dedicated barley farmers who specialize in producing some of the world’s top barley varieties for commercial breweries. During beer production, only the sugars, or malt, in the barley is used. The rest of the grain — including plant protein, fiber, and other nutrients — is still left and totally usable afterward. It’s called spent grain, but there is still quite a bit of nutrition to cash in on. That said, grains aren’t very creamy, so Take Two adds a touch of coconut cream and organic sunflower oil to create a milky consistency.
