For centuries, barley was just a by-product of the beer industry, ending up in landfills or occasional livestock feed after being used to create beer.
Today, depleted barley turns into a healthy and nourishing product vegetable milk instead of. Barley milk could be one of the most sustainable plant-based milk options on the market, as it is made only from a by-product that would otherwise be wasted.
sarah pool, CEO and co-founder of Take two foods said, “The bulb moment has come of realization. That billions of pounds of golden barley are thrown away every year in the production of beer. Brewers extract the sugars from the grain and the nutrient-rich fiber, and the protein that remains becomes what is called “spent grains”. Until now, spent barley kernels have been used as livestock feed or ended up in landfills.
While all plant-based milks are much better for the environment than dairy milks, certain types of plant-based milks have still been criticized for not being environmentally friendly enough. This barley milk is the perfect solution.
Take two barley milk is not only durable, but also made with a special formula to resemble traditional cow’s milk. Chicory root, sunflower oil, coconut cream and pea protein add to the charm of this plant-based milk, giving it a rich and fatty consistency. Like cow’s milk, it’s a little sweet with protein and fat to keep you full.
Right now, barley milk could be the new future of plant milks.
