What are Upcycled Ingredients?

Upcycled ingredients prevent food waste by creating new, high-quality, value-added products out of surplus food and byproducts. Upcycling food is an ancient tradition based on the philosophy of using all of what you have and elevating all food to its highest and best use.

NETZRO’s proprietary technology transforms byproducts into our upcycled ingredients that expands the food economy without growing more food.

Spent Grain Upcycling Story

Follow the journey of artisan grains from farm to distillery, through mashout, and then on to the NETZRO upcycling process. It then goes back into the food supply chain as high-quality nutrient-rich spent grain flour.  Nothing gets wasted.

NETZRO’s upcycled ingredients allow you to create sustainable new products, line extensions, or restage your existing brands.

Certified upcycled ingredients are food enhancements that can be used in a wide variety of products that add more nutrients, fiber, and protein: pretzels, crackers, cookies, snacks, baked goods, cereals, grain mix, granola and more!
