Malt Flour and Chicory extract

Malt has made its way into various products owing to its great beneficiary qualities. With passing time the demand for malt based food is increasing as it has natural goodness and tastes good too. Apart from brewing beer malt is used in confectionary (brown bread manufacturing) and in making breakfast cereals. All this is through malt flour that has gained huge popularity in the market. Due to high fibre content the product is advised to be consumed even by nutritionists as it helps to maintain colon health and get rid of constipation and add bulk to the stool. Malt flour is available in two forms.

chicory extract is also used as a “tonic,” to increase urine production, to protect the liver, and to balance the stimulant effect of coffee. Some people apply a paste of chicory leaves directly to the skin for swelling and inflammation. In foods, chicory leaves are often eaten like celery, and the roots, leaf buds are boiled and eaten. Chicory is also used as cooking spice and to flavor foods.
