So, what is malt d?

Malt D, also known as diastatic malt powder, is a natural sweetener derived from sprouted grains, typically barley. During the sprouting process, enzymes are activated that break down starches into simple sugars. Malt D is made by drying and grinding the sprouted grains into a fine powder. It is commonly used in baking as a dough conditioner, as it helps to break down complex sugars and starches into simpler forms, improving the texture and flavor of bread and other baked goods. Malt D can also be used as a flavor enhancer in beverages, such as beer and whiskey, as well as in malted milkshakes and other desserts.
