Valorization of spent barley grains: isolation of protein and fibers for starch-free noodles and its effect on glycemic response in healthy individuals
is a highly anticipated, original study published in the Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems journal, and is poised to revolutionise the field of sustainable food production and consumption. Authored by Shi P, Ng RNYK, Vijayan P, Lim SL and Bhaskaran K (2023), the study presents insightful findings that shed light on critical challenges and opportunities in achieving a more sustainable and resilient global food system.
The publication, titled "Valorization of spent barley grains: isolation of protein and fibers for starch-free noodles and its effect on glycemic response in healthy individuals", is now available online, providing innovative solutions for a more sustainable future in the form of repurposing a by-product of beer and malt production (Spent Barley Grains) into functional food (W0W® Noodle!) with optimistic consumer acceptance.
The study's findings have the potential to reshape agricultural practices and incentivise action among researchers, industry stakeholders, and consumers alike.
With this publication, we aim to spark conversations, inspire further research, and drive transformative change in the field of sustainable, functional food, and food as medicine, with W0W® Noodle as a beacon for change.
