What is maltose?
Maltose is a malt sugar or a high viscosity syrup processed by purely natural fermentation process. Maltose is an all-natural sweetener produced from distilling fermented. Also sometimes called malt syrup or malt sugar. This syrup is yellow-colored syrup which has a sweet taste but less sweet than sugar or honey depending on the concentration. It does a good job in preventing crystallization in other sugars so it is often used in making marinated meat, biscuit, sauces and cake.
To ensure our products are safe to consume, our maltose are processed by purely natural fermentation. At the best ratio, wheat, starch and enzyme are fermented for 24 hours through conversion process-concentration and filtration to produce a good quality maltose.
Maltose syrup often used in processing chocolate, candy, roasted chicken, tradisional biscuit and paste. This syrup has the capacity of extending the shelf life of a food product when added, as well as give glossiness and shiny surface to food products. It has good ferment ability, so is widely used in the production of bread, cake and beverages. Moreover, due to the thick consistency, maltose syrup gives BBQ food a better glaze that sticks to the surface and help in retaining moisture of food. Next, for biscuit the most common way is to put layer of maltose inside two pieces of biscuits (usually crackers).
Maltose syrup is a healthy option compared to table sugar. This syrup is a type of reducing sugar that can act as reducing agent which can easily donate electrons to another molecule and promote health. Reducing sugar interact with amino acids in foods and beverages which can lead to desirable browning and aromas.
Maltose is slightly healthier than table sugar. This is because maltose does not contain fructose like table sugar. Therefore, substituting table sugar with maltose in your diet will help you to avoid known health implications of too much fructose. Therefore by using maltose syrup might have a small health benefit since it will reduce your fructose intake.
