Uses for brewery waste products.
A practical evaluation of current research trends in the utilisation of waste yeast and spent grains as they apply to the needs of the Pacific Northwest is discussed. Date is presented to suggest that waste yeast and spent grain should be considered as potential profitable products and not as waste to be discarded to the sewer. The animal feed industry, and in particular, the culture of fish (mariculture) are dependent on feed and feed ingredients which are imported into the area. The problems of developing new foods for human use from yeast are also presented.
