first the beer , then the snack

road to zero waste

Ri-Snack is the first Italian snack that fights food waste, decreasing the need for raw materials and easing the exploitation of planet Earth's resources. For us at Biova Project it represents a further pride because it leads to zero waste from our beer production.

first the beer, then the snack 

Ri-Snack ™ by Biova Project is a very crunchy snack based on barley malt that is already served to make our Biova Beer.

After giving this fantastic service, the barley malt that remains is called "spent barley" and is still wonderfully full of protein, fiber and mineral salts, but much lower in sugar. In this way Ri-snack wins on all fronts: it is more sustainable (since it uses 40% less virgin raw materials), it is healthier, it is NEVER fried, and it is delicious! A full-blown win-win strategy!  

less waste, better taste

For centuries, brewers have used germinated and roasted barley malt to create the wort of their beers. It is a process that sees the barley grain reach germination and then undergo a malting process (toasting in fact) to create a depth of tastes and aromas in the beans. The malt, after releasing its aromas and sugars in the wort which will then become beer, is discharged from the mash vat and, in the best cases, used for animal feed, or as compost, but in most cases thrown in rubbish dump. We at Biova Project recover it and use this wonder to create our Ri-Snack.
