This Barley Malt Extract is 100% pure with nothing else added. Malted barley extract is made by sprouting and heating the barley grain. Once the grains begin to sprout, they generate enzymes which convert the barley's starch into sugar. This sugar is extracted from the barley by soaking the grain in water. The produce of this process is barley malt extract, which is dark in colour but has a gentle sweetness and syrupy consistency.
