What's spent grain?

Spent grains


Definition and benefits

Spent grain is a residue from brewing beer. It is mainly composed of barley and cereals. This by-product of beer is loaded with minerals, fibers and vitamins which are all essential elements in scalp health. Also, they contain antibacterial properties and nourishes the skin.

Spent grain is a growing problem in North America. One microbrewery can produce an average of 70 tons of spent grain per year (We're talking about 14 elephants here!).
