Organic Malted Barley
Malted Barley is made from barley that is malted (e.g. barley that is allowed to germinate), steam-dried, hulled, then ground and sifted. Technically, because it's malted, it has increased enzyme activity. More precisely, it contains alpha amylase, which helps to break down complex sugars and starch in the dough to simple sugars such as maltose, making them easier for yeast to feed on. Because it is organically sourced, the ingredients Barley was grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms.
