About Barley Malt Extract
Barley Malt Extract from Suma. For use as a spread, alternative sweetener or for brewing. Useful for baking.
Due to the type of enzymes naturally present in malt, malt extracts have carbohydrate profiles very similar to a high-maltose syrup. Because they are made from a wholegrain, they also contain about 6% protein (8% db), as well as an abundance of free amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. These constituents, which are not present in starch-based syrups, increse the nutritional value of malt extract as a nutritive sweetener and account for its use as a yeast food and browning agent.
