    Upcycled food company Renewal Mill has partnered with Miyoko’s Creamery, 

    a plant-based “dairy,” to create a new line of climate-friendly, vegan and gluten-free 

    cookies. 

    The new soft-baked cookies tap into the “massive consumer shift toward plant-based alternatives” and the growing appetite for F&B that can reduce food waste,” Caroline 

    Cotto, Renewal Mill’s co-founder, tells FoodIngredientsFirst.

    “The two biggest things we can do to fight climate change right now are reduce food 

    waste and eat more plant-based diets – a vegan cookie with upcycled ingredients 

    accomplishes both of these goals.” 

    The new Salted Peanut Butter cookie was designed by James Beard Award-winning 

    chef Alice Medrich, who will expand the line into Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle 

    varieties later this spring.


    Leveraging every last bit
    Renewal Mill’s latest cookie line is sourced from two upcycled ingredients. Miyoko’s brings 

    its European Style Cultured Vegan Butter to the mix, utilizing what’s left in its churning 

    equipment at the end of production.

    The vegan butter is palm-oil free and crafted to melt, brown, spread and bake exactly like 

    dairy-derived butter. 

    Renewal Mill’s meanwhile contributes its upcycled okara ingredient, derived from soy pulp 

    considered a “waste” product following soymilk production. 

    “In Japan, if you made soymilk at home, you would never throw away the okara. You would

    sautee it with vegetables to make a side dish or use it in baking, such as savory pancakes,” 

    notes Cotto. 

    In an added point of synergy, Miyoko’s Creamery founder and CEO, Miyoko Schinner, used 

    okara as a key ingredient in her first company in Japan.


    Upcycling nutrients
    Okara flour is packed with fiber and protein, it’s grain-free, gluten-free, low carb, 

    keto-friendly, and bakes comparably to traditional flours, underscores Cotto. 

    Renewal Mill’s organic okara flour contains 3 g net carbs, 20 g of fiber and 7g of protein.

    It is versatile for baking and cooking with a natural white flour taste. 

    Besides okara, Renewal Mill also works with oat milk producers to turn the pulp leftover 

    from making oat milk into a high protein flour. 

    “Our process can be applied to many of the billions of tons of byproducts produced each 

    year. We’ve worked with everything from carrot pulp to vanilla bean pulp in our R&D 

    kitchen,” says Cotto. 

    The company uses a proprietary co-location model where it installs equipment inside of 

    the manufacturing facilities of its partners to capture and process byproducts before 

    they leave the factory floor for the first time.

    Partnerships to widen reach
    Renewal Mill’s latest cookie line marks the first co-branded, upcycled product using Miyoko’s 

    Creamery ingredients. 

    Cotto explains that partnerships are instrumental to building the upcycled food movement 

    and are a key part of the company’s business strategy. 

    “Our main mission is to reduce food waste, so the more companies using our upcycled 

    ingredients in their products, the more impact potential we have.” 

    Besides Miyoko’s, the company has partnered with brands like Salt & Straw for upcycled 

    vegan ice cream, Burlap & Barrel to use their ethically sourced single-origin spices in 

    custom cookie mixes and Seconds Crackers, which uses Renewal Mill’s upcycled oat milk 

    flour in their upcycled carrot crackers. 


    Upcycling gaining traction 
    Innova Market Insights notably named “Upcycling Redefined” one of its Top Ten Trends 

    for 2022, a manifestation of its number one trend: “Shared Planet.” 

    This comes as the Upcycled Food Association released the first upcycled certification 

    program last year, of which Renewal Mill is a founding member. 

    “Now products can be upcycled certified the way they would be certified organic or 

    certified non-GMO,” says Cotto. 

    “We’re hoping that this certification will incentivize more food manufacturers to make 

    their supply chains and production processes more circular.”  

    She adds that some of the largest food manufacturers, like Mondelēz, Del Monte and 

    Barry Callebaut, have gotten products certified under the new upcycling labeling 

    scheme.
