Berkeley, Calif. – Puratos and ReGrained have entered an exclusive collaboration and supply agreement to offer upcycled solutions for the commercial baking industry.

Puratos is a 100-year-old international bakery ingredient company. ReGrained is a sustainable ingredient innovation company.

The move is meant to address shifting consumer tastes and expectations for more healthful, lower-carb and higher-fibre baked goods in convenient formats.

“This partnership offers powerful tools for the commercial baking industry to unlock the upcycled food opportunity at scale,” said Dan Kurzrock, founder and chief executive officer of ReGrained.

ReGrained’s Upcycled Food Lab is an innovation platform for upcycled product development. ReGrained SuperGrain+, its first certified upcycled ingredient derived from brewer’s spent grain, delivers a minimum of 3.5 times the dietary fibre and two times the plant protein of whole grain flours while lowering net carbs.

Puratos also has international expertise in natural fermentation, health and well-being, enzyme-based technologies, and consumer insights.

“Puratos aims to be the most reliable partner in innovation for the baked goods and chocolate market, which is why we invest so heavily in research and development,” says Michael Gleason, product manager of Bakery for Puratos USA.
