Malt extract is prepared by successive purifications, removing all enzymatic activity. In solution, it has a very light color. It is particularly well suited for culturing yeasts and molds, allowing the sporulation of molds such as Aspergillus and Penicillium. It has high carbohydrate content and should not be heated in excess to avoid the darkening of the medium. Malt Extract provides carbon, protein and nutrients in culture media. Malt Extract is one of few peptones that is not used strictly for nitrogen content, but for its high level of carbohydrates and vitamins. This peptone is classified as animal free, GMO-free.
