Upcycled snacks never tasted so good

Regrained Supergrain, a West Coast company run by home-brew enthusiasts Dan Kurzrock and Jordan Schwartz, rescues nutritious grain leftover from brewing beer. In most breweries, the grain might simply be tossed as waste. But with the sugar brewed out, the leftover grain is actually chock full of protein, fiber, and micronutrients. Regrained upcycles this supergrain into flour and produces delicious snack bars in three distinctive flavors. The Chocolate Coffee Stout is an energy bar combining the prebiotic grain with coffee flour, ginseng, and dark chocolate, and it has a rich, rather decadent flavor. The Honey Cinnamon IPA is an immune supporting bar with a light sweetness and rewardingly chewy texture. The new Blueberry Sunflower Saison, which also includes cranberries and ginger, promises antioxidants — like breakfast in a bar. All three make snacking feel almost virtuous — a healthy, innovative, sustainable, upcycled edible in recyclable packaging. “All taste, no waste.” $24.99 for 12-pack of 1.24oz. bars at www.regrained.com and www.Amazon.com
