The Spent Goods' Butter Crackers uniqueness comes from incorporating barley grains that have already been used to make beer. By diverting these ‘spent’ grains, you are directly helping to reduce greenhouse gases had it been disposed.
Made in Toronto by Spent Goods, Drake Commissary with leftover barley grains from Henderson Brewing Co.
DID YOU KNOW BARLEY GRAINS ARE:
Good for your Health – Considered one of the healthiest whole food grains. Studies show it’s protective against Breast Cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, Gallstones, Heart failure and lowers cholesterol.
Good Nutrition – Double the fiber and protein; Less gluten (but NOT gluten-free) and low glycemic compared to white flour bread.
HOW IS THE BARLEY SOURCED?
In the craft brewing process, once the barley has been boiled to release sugar, the grains are considered ‘spent’ and traditionally provided as animal feed or disposed – 185 million kgs of brewery grains are disposed in Ontario every year.
Instead, if we took those spent grains and made food with it, we could feed every Ontarian 2 loaves of bread every week!
These brewery grains have twice the amount of fibre and protein compared to wheat (it’s the reason it’s used as animal feed) – Fibre is ideal for reducing cholesterol and is one of the whole grains listed on the Canadian food guide.
We believe you can do something about climate change (and your heart) on a daily basis, simply by eating The Spent Goods Multigrain Loaf!
