So, what is maltose syrup?

Maltose syrup is a sweetener derived from the breakdown of starch molecules in grains like rice, wheat, and barley. It consists of two glucose molecules bound together, making it a disaccharide. Maltose syrup is commonly used in food production for its sweetness, as well as its ability to enhance texture, flavor, and shelf life. This syrup is often used as a substitute for other sugars like corn syrup and honey due to its mild taste and lower glycemic index. Maltose syrup is also a common ingredient in the production of beer, giving it a distinct sweetness and body.
