Maltodextrin is a pure carbohydrate that is a synergistic and complementary sweetener.
Now Foods Barley Malt Sweetener can be used to substitute for up to half the sugar content in baking recipes. It is also tasty and useful in hot cocoa or carob and malted milk shakes. Barley Malt is a natural sweetener derived from an extract of sprouted barley. As a sugar substitute, Barley Malt is a natural whole food and is easier on blood sugar highs and lows. We blend 10% maltodextrin (from corn) to limit clumping and allow for free flowing.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This has a mildly sweet and unique taste that can only be described as malty. It's a very fine powder that gets your hands a little bit sticky after you touch it. As a vegan, before finding this barley malt, it had been a very long time since I had last tasted a malt - otherwise known as a malted milkshake in some parts of the world. I thought that the only way to make one was to use malted milk. Well, that has animal products in it making it unsuitable for a vegan. Now, I just mix this barley malt with Better Than Milk Vegan Soy Milk Powder (also sold on iHerb) to make my own vegan malted milk! To make a milkshake, blend some of the homemade vegan malted milk with some vegan ice cream and you've got yourself some malted awesomeness. I also use a little of this barley malt when making homemade New York style bagels. It adds a mild hint of sweetness and flavor to the dough. My next experiment will be malted milk balls like Whopper's. This is great stuff! I totally recommend this product.
I bought it for bread-making. And I'm satisfied.
