Diastatic Malt Market Analysis, Segments, Value Share and Key Trends 2018-2028

Press Release

Diastatic malt is a grain which has been sprouted then dried and then grounded to powder form or further processed to liquid extract. Sprouting the grains activates the enzymes in the kernels and the drying process helps prevent the germination and locks down the activated enzymes in the grains. Diastatic malt is a type of malt that contains sugar breaking active enzymes; especially amylase, while the non-diastatic malt does not contain any enzymes. This enzyme in the diastatic malt breaks down the starches into sugar which accelerates the fermentation process and is mostly used in the bakery industry, in the dough making. The enzymes in the diastatic malt powder or the extract helps with the strong rise, crust and crumb texture of the bakery dough. Also, the extract promotes the browning reaction in the dough during the baking process resulting in a beautiful crust colour. Additionally, it also improves the machinability of the dough and adds little contribution to the flavour.
