Distillers Malt Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

Market Outlook for Distillers Malt Market:

Distillers Malt is the whiskey malt kilned at low temperatures in order to preserve the enzymes in the grain. Distillers Malt has higher diastatic power as well as high alpha amylase concentration compared to the whiskey malt. Distillers Malt maximizes the alcohol production from grains with maintaining the flavor and color of the alcohol. Distillers Malt requires high protein barley, resulting in the high levels of enzyme. These enzymes are preserved as much as possible during kilning step using lower heat and increased air flow. High levels of enzymes brings about higher conversion of sugar to alcohol during fermentation.

Distillers Malt popularity in alcoholic beverage industry:

Distillers Malt or kilned malts are very popular style of malt. The popularity of the distillers malt has to do with the way they are heated; kilning. The objective of the kilning the kernels at low temperatures is to dry them and not to heat them with water to convert starch into sugar. By doing that the moisture of kernels are brought to 3% to 5%, stopping further germination due to lack of water. Kiln is heated indirectly preventing any contamination of Distillers Malt from combustion gases. Diastatic enzymes present in the barley are needed for the conversion of starches into sugar. By kilning the barley kernels, diastatic enzymes of distillers malt are not destroyed. The maltsters prefer distillers malt because the high amount of diastatic enzymes produces maximum yield. Combination of heat and moisture during kilning gives a characteristic color, flavor, and odor to the end product. These characteristic makes the end product popular among consumers.

Global Distillers Malt market: Major producers

Major producers of distillers malt include Cargill Inc, Briess Malt & Ingredients Co., Great Western Malting, Rahr Malting Co., Gladfield Malting Company, Malting Company Ireland, Weyermann, Thomas Fawcett, Canada Malting, Muntons Malted Ingredients Inc., and Bairds Malt, etc.

Global Distillers Malt market: key developments

Distillers Malt is kilned gently at low temperatures with the supply of air. Innovation and development in the kilning process to achieve required temperature and moisture content has improved quality of distillers malt. Special varieties of barley containing high protein content are grown for the production of distillers malt in order to attain high diastatic enzyme count. Research on the health benefits of malt is ongoing and some results showed that the malting process increases vitamin B9 in the barley by two to three times the original amount.

Global Distillers Malt market: Opportunities

Due to increased consumption of alcoholic beverages around the globe malt ingredient industry shows increase in demand. Beer industry is the major consumer of the distillers malt and responsible for most of the demand. Various small regional companies are driving the distillers malt market growth. European malt export accounts more than 50% of the global malted barley market.

As the distillers malt gives characteristic flavor, aroma and color to the end products such beer, whiskey etc. the distillers malts are becoming popular choice among the consumer. Also demand for barley grown organically is increasing due to changes in habit of food and beverage intake of majority of the population.
