What is the nutritional value of barley malt?
Asked by nishantraw on Jun 24, 2009
Barley malt is loaded with B-vitamins, lots of minerals and some fiber and protein, although it has less protein than whole barley. Malt is produced from the whole barley grain, which means that the nutrients concentrated near the hull are preserved. Furthermore, because the barley grain is germinated to make malt, it has more B-vitamins and less starch than barley flour. Malted barley is used to make beer and whiskey and it is the base of a coffee substitute. It is also used to enhance the flavor of certain foods.
