Malted Barley Flour 



 Malt can be diastatic or non-diastatic.  "Diastatic" refers to the diastatic enzymes that are created as the grain sprouts.  These enzymes convert starches to sugars,

Non-diastatic is simply added as a sweetener, diastatic malt breaks down the starch in dough to yield sugars on which the yeast can feed. 

Diastatic malt powder ( or barley malt syrup ) when added to dough helps produce a finer texture and longer keeping quality.  

Use approximately 1 tsp. per loaf.  The use of more diastatic malt than this can result in slack, sticky dough, and will not improve yeast action.
