What We Think
Healthy alternative to sugar.
Barley malt extract is the most common malt. It has a sweet taste, with lots of familiar malt flavours. It can be used in variety of ways, stirred into hot milk, used when baking bread instead of sugar or have a spoonful once a day for a healthy, nutritional supplement.
Meridian Malt Extract is made from selected barley grain. Starch in grains is nature's way of storing food for the new plant. When the seed is stimulated by moisture and warmth to start growing, naturally present enzymes convert the starch into sugars to be used by the germ as it grows into a young plant.The malthouse simulates the Spring conditions of moisture and warmth and encourages the barley to sprout. After the germination process converts the starch into malt sugars, the process is halted by drying the grains in a kiln. This toasting stops growth and is responsible for the characteristic flavour of malt.After toasting, the soluble components are concentrated to make malt extract, a thick syrup containing a complex mixture of carbohydrates, minerals and proteins, together with trace elements and vitamins.
