Malt flavoring is an extract, most commonly from the grain barley, but may be made from other grains. It is made by germinating the barley grains by soaking them in water, then heating them to stop the germination so the plant doesn't grow.


The germination causes the starch in the grains to turn to sugar, with the result being an extract that has many uses.


Malt is used in the brewing of beer as a food for the yeast, as well as a flavoring that is found in many foods.


It contains gluten, which is a complex of proteins found in the grain, so it's not safe for people with Celiac disease or other gluten sensitivity.
