Food upcycling: Reduce. Reuse. Regrained.

ReGrained rescues the nutritious grain created every time that beer is brewed

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+

“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⁣⁣

Madeleine Wisecup

A few years ago, I became obsessed with learning about sustainable and ethical practices and products, waste reduction, natural foods, and overall wellness. I read articles and books about the toxic products we put on our skins and into our bodies; explored numerous facets, challenges, and success stories of the slow fashion/sustainable fashion movement; and started reading the ingredient labels on everything I bought (you’d be surprised how much crap you can’t even pronounce). I was on a personal mission to improve my overall wellness and to become a wiser, more conscientious consumer. The more research I did – and continue to do – the more I realized how many amazing people and businesses were out there making a difference, breaking the status quo, and positively impacting the lives of people all over the world while equally making our planet just a little bit happier. These were people invested in using their businesses as, as Richard Branson would say, a force for good, people who were in the business of positive change. I was hooked. Today, I am on a quest to connect with social- and environmental-impact entrepreneurs; to uncover ethical and sustainable practices and brands, and to share the remarkable stories of good-doers and the impacts they’re making all over the world.
