Dried Spent Grain: Market outlook
Dried spent grain is one of the main by-products of the breweries produced all over the year that is presently not suitably taken care of, both in economic and environmental terms. In addition, dried spent grain biomass can be a low-cost source of bio-energy and innovative and valuable bio-products.
The recent studies have confirmed, from an economic and technological perspective, the viability of using dried spent grain as fuel for energy applications due to its hydrogen and carbon content, which provide it with a better calorific value.
Dried spent grain is the most lavish by product generally produced in the beer brewing process. Dried spent grain mainly obtained from the husk of a barley grain as the solid residue left after the wort production. Dried spent grain is enriched in protein and fibre and is mainly used in bakery as well as animal feed industry; that is surging the demand for dried spent grain during the upcoming years.
Health Benefits Associated with Dried Spent Grain Luring the Growth
The dried spent grain is enriched with proteins and fibers, hence it provides and supports the health and immunity of consumers. The busy lifestyle and flexitarian diet are few of the factors due to which consumers are looking for those products that fulfil the daily nutritional requirement of the body.
Dried spent grain contains beta-glucans and phenolic components, and these components work as prebiotic compounds after reaching the large intestine.
As dried spent grain is obtained from wheat, and barley, the antioxidant molecules present in it boost up the immune system and reduces the risk of cancers. Due to these health beneficial properties of dried spent grain, its demand is anticipated to increase in several end-use industries including food and beverages.

Sustainable and Renewable Sources May Create Future Prospects for Dried Spent Grain Market
With the rising demand for sustainability in all sectors, it is incontrovertible that no side streams are wasted in the forthcoming period. The global effort to upturn the number of renewable energy sources will possibly increase the application of dried spent grain as one of the energy sources.
According to the Journal of Cereal Science, replacing normal flour with dried spent grain in a bread loaf will duple the content of fibre, improves the content of essential amino acid by 10%, enhances the protein level by 50%, and reduces the calories by around 7%. This drastic variation of nutritional content in the bakery products such as bread is truly notable and also marketed to a particular segment.
Consumers engrossed in the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) are a huge and growing segment of the market. Moreover, reusing of dried spent grains as a sustainable waste of food solution appeals to the consumers who are conscious regarding the environment.
However, dried spent grain remains an eye-catching raw material for health-supplement for the food ingredients. The health-promoting trend in the global food industry is not likely to become extinct as long as the urbanised nations are tackling the several health issues rising from overweight as well as ageing population demographics. These are the key factors that may create interesting and new growth prospects for dried spent grain to arise in the near future.
