250g pack for artisan bread baking.

Made from certified organic NZ grown Barley and milled to order.

Diastatic malt is a well kept secret of traditional artisan bread bakers. It is rich with minerals & enzymes that act as natural preservatives & boost the nutritional value of breads.

Further, the reaction of the malt with yeasts & flour enhances the texture, size, appearance and flavour of your bread.

Artisan breads with diastatic malt powder added will have superior crust colour, crumb texture & sweeter natural flavour.

Diastatic malt is important to have in doughs (yeasted or sourdough) that have long fermentation times or are retarded overnight in the fridge.

"Diastatic" refers to the natural enzymes that are created as the live grain sprouts.

The sprouted barley grains are then dried at LOW heat (not roasted, no colour is formed on the grain) to preserve the natural enzymes the grains created as they come to life in the sprouting process.

These natural enzymes when mixed into bread doughs help convert starches in the flour to sugars, which then feed the yeasts.

Only a small amount of diastatic malt is added to the flour, typically @ 0.5% of the total amount of flour used for a loaf of bread. For example a loaf containing 500g of flour, add 2.5g of diastatic malt (half a teaspoon is aprox 2.5g).

You are bidding on 250g of freshly ground organic NZ diastatic malt powder. Its a benefit for you that my diastatic malt powder is made from NZ grown organic Barley and I mill fresh to order.

250g is an ample amount for home bakers as you only use small amounts per bake.

Combine with 1 of my other bread tool or plant listings for freight saving.
