So, what is wheat syrup?

Wheat syrup, also known as wheat malt syrup or wheat extract, is a natural sweetener derived from whole wheat grains. It is made by soaking and sprouting the grains to release enzymes, which are then used to break down the starches into simple sugars. The resulting syrup has a deep, rich flavor that is similar to molasses, but with a lighter texture and a milder sweetness. Wheat syrup is a popular ingredient in baked goods, confections, and beverages, and is often used as a healthier alternative to refined sugars. It is also a source of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, making it a nutritious addition to any diet.
