MALTEX® RED is a reddish brown viscous sirup of malt extract. Caramel malted barley is extracted with hot water. The resulting liquor is filtered (mash filter) and boiled. The hot break resulting from boiling is removed by centrifugation. The extract is highly purified from extraneous matters, like proteins for example, by ultrafiltration. After ultrafiltration refinement, the extract is concentrated by vacuum evaporation. MALTEX® RED flavours are malty and caramel. This malt extract is in high demand by those marketing their beer on an « additive free » platform. It is indeed an alternative to the use of Caramel Colouring Agent as this natural product free of additives does not command an « E » number. MALTEX® RED is an excellent colouring medium to adjust beer colour in the reddish brown range.
