It is produced in two forms—dried and liquid malt extracts. The liquid malt extracts have high viscosity and are available in color shades ranging from light to dark. The dry malt extracts are prepared by spray drying liquid extracts. Malt extract has been in use in multiple products for its unique flavor characteristics; it also works as a sugar or honey substitute in baked food, bars, cereals, and cookies, among others.
