KosmodeHealth's Sustainable Triumph: SICC Award Recognizes Innovative Collaboration

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

In addition to winning the esteemed Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC) Award, Kosmode Health's innovative partnership with Nestlé Singapore and Nestlé R&D Center has established them as leaders in transformative practices. This article highlights the significant repurposing of spent barley grains for human nutrition between the 2 companies.

The Vision of Collaboration:

Kosmode Health and Nestlé started a project to find new uses for Spent Barley Grains (SBG), a leftover material from the manufacturing of malt extracts. In the hands of KosmodeHealth, this waste stream from Nestlé's factory became a valuable resource, providing a shining example of sustainability in the food industry.

Enhancing Nutritional Profiles Investigating the nutritional potential of SBG was made possible in large part by the partnership with the Nestlé R&D Center. By repurposing SBG (a food processing waste), and enhacing protein and fibres to make noodles, Kosmode Health's novel approach showed that it was possible to repurpose and maximise the value of food production waste. It has also been appropriate for creating functional foods targeted at managing diabetes as many reported having 0 Glycemic reponse upon eating the W0W(R)noodle. The Revolutionary Functional Food, W0W(R)noodle

Nestlé's supply of SBG made it possible for Kosmode Health to introduce W0W(R)Noodle, a high-protein, high-fibre noodle that can withstand the conventional rise in blood sugar levels. This represents an important turning point in the development of functional foods by providing a wholesome and long-lasting treatment for diabetes and managing weight.

SICC Award as a Beacon of Innovation

In conclusion, the achievement of Kosmode Health's joint ventures with Nestlé is evidenced by the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC) Award. This honor highlights the significance of creative collaborations in influencing the direction of the food industry while also honouring sustainability and change. By demonstrating the significant positive effects that sustainable practices can have on the environment and public health, Kosmode Health's dedication to converting waste streams into nutritious gold sets an example for the industry.
