This Organic Malted Barley Powder is 100% pure diastatic malted barley flour which has been milled from the whole malted barley kernel—the husk, endosperm and germ. Nothing else is added, no sugar or fillers of any kind.
Diastatic Malt Flours contain naturally occurring active enzymes that function as natural dough conditioners in yeast fermented dough. It is used for promoting a strong rise, adding a mild natural malt flavor and enhancing appealing crust browning. It is good for Baked Goods, Bagels, Crackers, Pizza Crust, Pretzels.
Professional bakers also find it useful for providing uniform and improved fermentation and improving machinability and extensibility. Enzymatic digestion of starch increases fermentation, relaxes the dough, decreases proofing time, increases volume, enhances browning and softens the crumb. Malted barley is a natural humectant that helps extend product shelf life.
