Grain School Test Kitchen

GS Test kitchen 1

Increasing whole grains grown in Colorado is not only a great way to enhance the nutritional value of your product or menu, but it also adds new flavors and textures. At our newly developed test kitchen we assist you, your business, institution or project to make-over existing or develop new recipes with greater whole grain content using Colorado grown grains. We connect you with Colorado farmers currently growing grains so you may source some of your ingredients from Colorado. 

How it work: 

We receive your request by email, then collaborate with you in recipe design or make-over, menu integration, scaling, nutrition analysis, data on consumer acceptance, and develop supporting grain literacy and Colorado-grown grain branded marketing materials. 

Send email request to Dr. Nanna Meyer, Department of Human Physiology and Nutrition at nmeyer2@uccs.edu:

Include the following with your request:

1. idea or need (including the type of product)

2. target audience/consumer segment 

3. timeline you are looking for

4. type of business
