MaltWise® M Wheat & Barley Malt Syrup

Massive changes are afoot in the brewing industry. As brewers continuously increase their production efficiency, they also aspire to brew their beers in an ever-more sustainable manner. Consumers at the same time demand ever-more choices in taste profiles, experiences and alcohol levels, yet always as label-friendly as can be.

MaltWise®  M is a wheat and barley malt syrup that boosts fermentation, thereby increasing brewing output lines. As it is high in easily fermentable sugars and is only mildly processed thereby helping to ensure nutrients and minerals are preserved in the syrup, it functions as a fermentation booster with added benefits versus traditionally used brewing adjuncts.

  • Label-friendly ingredient: A nature-derived syrup from wheat and malted barley, MaltWise® M meets ISO natural definition* and fits perfectly in beer ingredient lists.
  • More sustainable production process: Produced via a simple process using barley malt for saccharification, significant reductions in energy and processing aids compared to a traditional high maltose syrup process can be achieved*.
  • Fermentation booster: MaltWise® M wheat and barley malt syrup is high in maltose — which helps to support yeast fermentation and increase brewing outputs.
  • Body and mouthfeel: MaltWise® M is a 45 DE syrup, characterized by a medium viscosity, resulting in a more full-bodied beer – with enhanced mouthfeel and well-roundedness when not 100% fermented.
