What is the impact of the malting on the barley nutritional value ?

Beyond the fact that it contains rapidly assimilated energy (sugars, degraded starch), malted barley is also characterized by:

  • high content of natural enzymes : amylolytic activity , as well as the β -glucanase and phytase activities are very quickly highly increased by the germination,
  • high content of antioxidants (phenolic compounds) : the malting increases significantly the antioxidant activity of barley,
  • lower content of β -glucans compared to barley,
  • high palatability

The germinated barley therefore optimizes the function of the digestive system of pets to keep them healthy, improve their performance and make them more resistant to the environmental pressure and weather conditions.
