So, what is a malt?

Malt is a flavorful ingredient derived from sprouted grains that have been dried and then ground into a fine powder. The process of malting develops natural enzymes that break down starches, making them more easily digestible and providing a unique sweetness and nuttiness to the flavor profile. Malt is commonly used in brewing to add depth and complexity to beers, but it's also a versatile ingredient in baking and cooking. It can be used to make bread, cookies, and other baked goods, and it's often used as a natural sweetener in beverages like smoothies and milkshakes. Malt's distinct flavor and versatility make it a favorite of chefs and home cooks alike.
