Product Overview

Meridian Foods Barley Malt Extract is a sweet syrup extracted from malted barley. It is sweet and nutty with a hint of caramel and is used in baking, cooking and beverages to enhance flavours.

When used in baking, malt extract adds sweetness and moisture to the bread. It can also be used in place of sugar to bloom yeast. Its dark colour imparts an appetising caramel tint to baked goods.

In cooking, it is used as a glaze for roasted or grilled dishes. Pleasantly sticky and nutty, it is a popular addition to sauces, marinades, chocolates and homemade sweets.

As a sweetener, Barley malt extract has a lower glycaemic index than table sugar and can be used as a healthier alternative. Added to cocoa or milk, it makes a delicious malted beverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Meridian Barley Malt Extract contain alcohol?

Barley Malt Extract does not contain alcohol. While it may be used in beer brewing, the alcohol is not present in the extract. Instead, it is produced during fermentation, which happens after the malt extract is added to feed the yeast that converts the sugars in malt extract into ethanol.
