FUNBREW - Biotransformation of brewers´ spent grain

The aim of the FUNBREW project is to recycle brewers´ spent grain into a functional ingredient for food industry.

The focus of the project FUNBREW is the establishment of bioprocessing technologies for the biosynthesis of exopolysaccharides (EPS) and antioxidants able to transform the properties of the brewers' spent grain enhancing its processability. FUNBREW integrates both fundamental and applied research to fully exploit the potential of breweries side streams and to enable the development of sustainable food systems.

The project is coordinated by Dr. Rossana Coda from University of Helsinki / Grain Technology and Bioprocessing research group.
