Why is upcycling important?
When we waste food, we waste all the resources that went in to growing that food. If we use everything that's produced, we're creating a better food system for the planet. We create our upcycled ingredients from nutrition that would have otherwise been wasted. In doing so, we're producing food with a smaller environmental impact and a lower carbon footprint. It's truly flour that fights climate change.
How does Renewal Mill upcycle?
Renewal Mill's proprietary production process works with all kinds of byproducts but we're first targeting the byproducts of plant-based milk production. These byproducts are usually pulps, like soybean pulp, oat pulp, and almond pulp. We dry and mill these pulps without using synthetic processing techniques or unnatural fortification to produce nutritious ingredients that are rich in macronutrients including fiber and protein.
What does Renewal Mill upcycle?
Our process can be applied to many of the billions of tons of byproducts produced each year. We've worked with everything from carrot pulp to vanilla bean pulp in our R&D kitchen. Starting with okara, Renewal Mill is crafting the upcycled ingredient platform of tomorrow.
