(BPT) - Good news on the climate front: there are now about 400 upcycled products sold in the United States, according to the Upcycled Food Association. Using upcycled ingredients in packaged food and beverages helps reduce food waste and can eliminate some of the harmful greenhouse gas emissions from the food supply chain.

As upcycled ingredients become more prevalent in our favorite foods, people will increasingly ask, “What, exactly, are upcycled foods?”

We’ve made the answer highly approachable in engaging snackable bits of information as a means to encourage people to do their share to reduce food waste simply by choosing certain things to eat or drink. So, go bananas and help your audience tackle the climate crisis bite by bite, sip by sip!
