EverGrain Ingredients, an ingredient company, has announced that its entire portfolio of upcycled barley protein and fibre ingredients has received the Upcycled Food Association’s (UFA) certification. The first-of-its kind mark, which launched last year, will enable food and beverage manufacturers that use the ingredients place the claim on its packaging.

“We started our journey in 2013, long before upcycling was a trend, with the goal of unlocking every grain of potential in our barley to have a positive impact on people and planet,” said Gregory Belt, EverGrain CEO. “We are transforming spent barley – what we, at EverGrain, call saved barley – into one of the world’s most sustainable, accessible, plentiful sources of plant-based protein and fibre.”

Additionally, EverGrain has achieved the Non-GMO Project Verification, which is the only third-party non-GMO verification for food ingredients.
