Malt Industry in India
Malt is the name given both to germinated grain, and to the sugar derived from it. The process of germinating (“sprouting”) grain converts the starch to a mixture of sugars, thus increasing the sweetness, and the process is then halted by drying in a special kiln. The malted grain then used to add flavor and sweetness to beer, whisky, milkshakes and baked goods. The process extracts and concentrates the sugar into thick gloppy brown syrup quite suitable for eating directly. Not only is malt extract very delicious, it is also highly nutritious as it contains a lot of minerals, amino acids, folic acid, and B vitamins.
The domestic demand for Malt and Malt Extract is poised for growth because of growth of end user industry. The major portion of malt consumption is expected from the breweries and there would also be requirement for better quality malt as a number of foreign companies have joint ventures in India now. According to the experts, the industry is expected to maintain a growth rate of 15-20% per annum for the next ten years. The food and pharma industry (malt extract users like cornflake manufacturers, health foods etc) is also poised for growth due to a small production at present, and this is likely to grow at 10% per annum. Taking a moderate growth rate for 5% of the remaining end user segments.
Our products maximizes the extract yield with improved wort quality even in case of use of unmalted grains as an adjuncts due to efficient break down starch, protein, glucans.
