So, what is barley malt syrup?

Barley malt syrup is a natural sweetener that's made from sprouted barley grains that are dried and then slowly cooked down into a thick, dark syrup. It has a distinctively rich, malty flavor and is a popular alternative to refined sugars in baking and cooking. Due to its high mineral content and low glycemic index, barley malt syrup is often considered a healthier option compared to traditional sweeteners. It can also be used to enhance the flavor of beverages, like beer and whiskey, and as a binding agent in granola bars and other snacks.
