So, what is gerstemout?

Gerstemout, also known as malted barley, is a versatile ingredient widely used in the food and beverage industry. It is made by sprouting barley grains, which activates enzymes that break down the starches in the barley into simpler sugars. The sprouted barley is then dried and ground into a fine powder, resulting in gerstemout. This ingredient adds a nutty, toasty flavor and a distinctive aroma to baked goods, beer, and other beverages. It also acts as a natural sweetener and a source of nutrients such as protein, fiber, and vitamins. Gerstemout is a popular ingredient among brewers, bakers, and chefs for its ability to enhance the taste and texture of their creations.
