In this podcast at The Wise Consumer, Madeleine interviews Daniel Kurzrock, co-founder of ReGrained an impact enterprise that basically rescues the nutritious grain created every time that beer is brewed.
For Daniel, upcycling is a challenge to reimagine an end as a beginning. Facts are that 1/3 of the food we produce in the world is wasted, and that does not even include edible byproducts. ReGrained’s mission: To rescue those overlooked, but awesome ingredients and put them back to work—fueling your day, your taste buds, and your imagination. Wanna Eat Beer? So far they have upcycled over 100,000 Lbs of SUPERGRAIN+
At ReGrained, they are passionate about food upcycling because it is an opportunity to get creative with sustainability. This brand fuels nutrition to better align the food we eat with the planet we love! It’s upcycled, prebiotic, sustainable, 1% for the planet & BCorp certified.

“Social entrepreneurship isn’t a fad, I think it’s here to stay. I hope if we are successful it will just become business as usual and companies that aren’t doing the right thing will suffer in the marketplace because of it…because as consumers, we give a shit and that’s great.” – Daniel Kurzrock
