Abstract: The reuse of residue is an alternative that benefits the industries, adding value to the residue and still reducing the costs necessary with the treatment before its disposal, but it can also enrich human food. The malted barley residue (malt bagasse) is the main residue obtained in the manufacture of beer. However, it is often discarded in the environment incorrectly or used as feed. Its nutritional potential, its ease of obtaining and its low cost, are incentives for this ingredient to be used in food. The present study is aimed at carrying out the physical-chemical characterization of the malted barley residue, in order to assess its nutritional potential. Physical-chemical analysis showed that the bran from malted barley residue presented high content of fibre, proteins and minerals, mainly phosphorus, in addition to a significant amount of potassium, iron and calcium and low sodium content. Thus, the malted barley residue showed nutritional potential to be used as ingredient in food formulation, being a sustainable way of the food industry to take advantage of this residue. The malted barley residue can be an important ingredient in the production of breads, cakes and cookies, among other preparations. These would be low-cost foods, representing savings both for the beer sector, which needs to dispose off the residue, and for the food industry, in addition to contributing to the preservation of the environment. Thus, the present study shows that the reuse of malted barley residue is a sustainable practice with environmental, economic and nutritional importance.
