Shipton Mill Diastatic Malt Flour, now available at Ratton Pantry, is a great product to compliment our larger selection of Shipton Mill's incredible artisan flours.

Diastatic Malt Flour, sometimes known as Diastatic enzyme active malt flour, is a product made from malted barley. Commonly used to soften the crumb of bread or give a darker crust colour, diastatic malt flour gives these results without the need for adding additional sugar.

DIAX Diastatic Malt Flour is particularly useful with long fermentation doughs, where diastatic malt flour helps to improve the fermentation vigour. Great with long ferment and cold fermented bread dough and pizza dough.

We recommend incorporating only a small proportion, up to 0.5%, in your mix, to avoid your load from becoming sticky.

Try using Diastatic Malt Flour when next making malt loaf, the active enzymes break down starches to help produce the gorgeous gooey consistency.

What's the difference between diastatic malt flour and non-diastatic malt flour?

The difference between non-diastatic malt and diastatic malt is the enzyme content or activity. Diastatic malt is not kilned, but dried at low temperatures to preserve its enzymatic activity. Non-diastatic malt is produced for its sweetening and coloring effect.
