Malt Products Corporation recently measured the antioxidant properties of Malt Extract, and found our Malt Extract possessed antioxidant activity across 4 of the 5 radical types tested. On a gramfor gram basis, Malt Extract has five (5) times the antioxidant power of fresh broccoli as measured by total ORAC (values as measured using the ORAC 5.0 test, Brunswick Labs). Replacing refined sweeteners with our Malt Extract can increase the total antioxidant capacity of your product. Malt Extract also contains many essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids. In fact, it is a good source of dietary silicon (important for bone health), B complex vitamins, and micro minerals such as Magnesium, Manganese and Selenium.
