Dried Malt Extract DME (Spraymalt)
Spraymalt is a dried malt extract (DME) from Muntons, supplied in a 500g pouch. It is made from the finest 2-row barley, and is an excellent sugar replacement for those that would like to avoid refined sugars. This malt extract, available in a choice of three shades gives a lovely subtle malty flavour in buns and cakes. Of course, there is plenty of scope for experimentation! We have tried a delicious malted caramel slice recipe which you can find here, and a malted rye loaf here.
Dried malt extract is used in American-style milk shakes, or "malts". It works well in milk drinks - try a spoonful added to a flavoured milkshake for an enhanced fruity flavour.
Spraymalts are fine powder dried malt extracts. Drying is achieved by the use of a spray-drier, a process which produces particularly uniform powders both in terms of particle size and flavour. Spraymalts offer several benefits: a rich malty flavour, a natural colouring medium, a valuable source of fermentable sugars and may be used to replace liquid extracts.
