Malted based powder, combines barley malt and milk for a more nutritious, sweeter drink than just milk. Malt powder results from sprouting barley, drying it and grinding it into a powder. Look for two types sold in stores for bread baking or beer making diastatic and non-diastatic. Non-diastatic, tastes sweeter than diastatic as enzymes have been added to it to convert the starches in the malt into sugars. Use either malt powder when making your malted milk powder. Try a relaxing cup of warm malted milk tonight prepared from your homemade powder or mix it with cold water or milk for an alternative to flavored milk.
