Barley malt is similar to rice syrup in that it is processed from grain, and retains about 40% of its complex carbohydrates. The remaining sugar composition is 42% maltose, 6% glucose, and about 1% fructose. It is used mainly in candies and soy milks and imparts a rich, distinct flavor. Avoid products that have been mixed with corn syrup, which will speed up the absorption of the sugars.
