46 - What is Kernza?

“This is literally what the future tastes like.” Those are the words of our first guest in this episode, Fred Iutzi, president of The Land Institute (1:20). He joined us to provide you with some background on Kernza, being developed as a grain crop with big benefits for the environment. We’re talking about Kernza because, for the first time, it’s in one of our cereals. You’ll learn about Honey Toasted Kernza from Cascadian Farm, and our journey to use Kernza, in an interview with Maria Carolina Comings, marketing director for Cascadian Farm (19:00).We also talked with Jacob Jungers, whose research at the University of Minnesota is focused on the agronomics and environmental impacts of Kernza (31:15).And we had an interesting discussion with Tracy Singleton, owner of the Birchwood Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota (34:10), which has Kernza in some of the items on its menu.For more information about how you can support the Kernza mission, and to see the new cereal from Cascadian Farm, visit us at https://blog.generalmills.com.
We talked with several partners of our 301 INC unit, at Natural Products Expo West, who provide lessons about failure and success. Plus, they offer advice for other startups looking to grow their business. For more information, visit us at https://blog.generalmills.com/
