Applied for baking industry
Rye, oatmeal and buckwheat malts are used in bakery to improve the bread color, taste and aroma. The crumb acquires a brownish color and the specific malt aroma and taste. The use of rye malt prolongs the bread freshness and increases the biological value of a final product. The proportion of the rye malt used to prepare dough can be up to 10% of the flour weight. During the yeast-malt interaction, alcohol is generated, which allows to use the product in such processes and industries as brewing, baking and yeast production.
