What are beer grain crisps?
Darling Brew Beer Grain Crisps are a uniquely South African creation that originated in the West Coast town of Darling. Utilising the spent grains from the beer making process these incredible tasting crisps are not only contributing to our sustainability drive but are also a significantly healthier alternative to regular crisps.
Everyone's favourite snack
The Darling Brew Beer Grain Crisps are 50% lower in fat than regular crisps, and as a result of the spent grains are high in fibre. Oh, and they're also great for the kids as there is NO alcohol! With four unique flavours, there's something for everyone and the perfect any time snack to sit back and enjoy with your favorite DB Beer.
There is still a considerable amount of moisture in these spent grains, and thus unlike regular crisps where as much as 1500 litres of water is used with every 1000kgs of maize, our crisps require no additional water. By utilising the spent grains, we are minimising food wastage and contributing to the conservation of our water supplies.
These spent grains are then converted into a dough which is cut to our unique hexagonal shape which like our Slow Beer is inspired by the Geometric Tortoise and the shape found on its shell. The hexagonal crisps are then baked and flash-fried so as to create their exceptional crispness.
