Malt extract is a sweet, treacly/syrup like substance used in the past as a dietary supplement. It was popular in the first half of the twentieth century as a supplement for the children of the British urban working-class, whose diet was often deficient in vitamins and minerals. Nowadays malt extract is used to add flavour and colour to various food products like bakery, ice cream and confectionery products.
Acatris can offer various types of malt extract with different flavour and colour intensities, and both enzymatically active and inactive.
