TLDR
The present study presents and discusses the most recent perspectives for BSG application in foods, in energy production and in chemical and biotechnological processes.
Biotechnological Potential of Brewers Spent Grain and its Recent Applications
TLDR
A fractionation process which allows the exploitation of biomolecules belonging to different classes, produced from one feedstock (BSG) may be used as a pattern for the implementation of the biorefinery concept in industrial scale, as long as the methods adopted ensure the functionality of the potentially valuable components.
Brewer’s spent grain: source of value-added polysaccharides for the food industry in reference to the health claims
Brewer’s spent grain (BSG) is the most abundant by-product of the brewing industry, constituting approximately 85 % (w/w) of the total by-products generated during beer production. Rich in cellulose
Conversion of brewers’ spent grain into proteinaceous animal feed using solid state fermentation
TLDR
The application of solid state fermentation as a bioprocess allowing the significant reduction of the environmental impact caused by the beer brewing industry and simultaneously producing animal feed with higher protein content and improved nutritional characteristics is expected to provide some useful information on the utilization of BSG as substrate for fungi-initiated SSF.
Biovalorization of brewers’ spent grain for the production of laccase and polyphenols
Brewers’ spent grain (BSG) is the main solid by-product of the brewing process and is typically disposed of as cattle feed. In this study, BSG was evaluated as a substrate for the production of
Biotechnological Potential of Brewing Industry By-Products
The manufacture of beer inevitably involves generation of various residues and by-products. The most common by-products are spent grains, spent hops and surplus yeast, which are generated from the
A new approach on Brewer's spent grains treatment and potential use as lignocellulosic yeast cells carriers.
TLDR
The feasibility of using BSG for LCYC production is strengthened by the fact that added-value byproduct can be extracted before the chemical treatments are applied, and the highest cellulose content in LCYC was achieved upon application of caustic (NaOH) treatment.
Fungal Biovalorization of a Brewing Industry Byproduct, Brewer’s Spent Grains: A Review
TLDR
The biochemical makeup of BSG, the biological mechanisms underlying fungi’s primacy to this application, and the current applications of fungi in this realm are discussed.

By-Products in the Malting and Brewing Industries—Re-Usage Possibilities
Beer production includes the formation of different by-products such as wastewater, spent grains, spent hops, and yeast. In addition to these well-known by-products, it is necessary to mention
