Food drying: the case of beer flour

HSCD is a a revolution that has already given excellent results. In fact, this technology has been adopted by Circular Food, a company that shares the same values as PIM: fighting food waste, promoting environmental sustainability and improving the quality of life of each of us with upcycled food products.

PIM has made its technological know-how available for the production of Ley – Farina di birra products, an Italian brand of upcycled food made of beer flour. Ley is a peculiar type of flour, that is obtained from malted barley grains and hops, the waste of the production of beer. These raw materials are treated with HSCD, the system that uses combined non-ionizing electromagnetic waves to dry the products using a third of the time compared to traditional systems. This is why Ley is a good, respectful and healthy flour.
