So, what is malte?

Malte is a versatile ingredient used in various food and beverage applications. It is a type of malt extract that is created by soaking and sprouting grains such as barley, wheat, or rye, then drying and crushing them into a powder or syrup. Malte is rich in enzymes, amino acids, and carbohydrates, which makes it an excellent source of flavor, color, and nutrients. It is commonly used in brewing beer, baking bread, and making confectionery products like chocolate and caramel. Malte adds a unique nutty, toasty, and slightly sweet flavor to any recipe, making it a popular choice for chefs and food manufacturers alike.
