Chocolate Malts are often hindered by bitter and astringent flavours that occur due to the burning of the husk in the roasting process. Gladfield Chocolate malts utilise a unique roasting process that keeps the husk moist throughout roasting, thus inhibiting these bitter and astringent flavours. This offers smooth roast flavours without the harshness that is often associated with darker malts.
