more are beginning to appreciate and

REAL SUGAR SUBSTITUTE "'HAS
SANCTION OF GOVERNMENT
Malt Sugar Sirup Has ' High Food
Value and Delicious Flavor
Made from Barley in Same Plants and
With Practically Identical Equip,
ment Formerly Used in Mak- -ing
Malt sugar sirups a brand-new
sweet which has arrived on a com
mercial scale at the psychological mo
ment to relieve the sugar shortage,
say the specialists of 'the Bureau of
Chemisery, United States Depart
ment' of Agriculture, - who Vhave in
vestigated "various substitutes for
sugar. In addition to being a v sweet
malt sugar sirup has a -'v delicious
flavor, somewhat resembling that of
honey, which adds tnucH to ' its - paK '
atability and value as a Kugar Sub
Commercial Proouction Beginning
While malt sugar, has long" been
known to chemists its production on
a commercial scale is only beginning.
Two factors have stimulated its pro
duction recently. The shortage of
sugar has developed a market for it,
and the recent prohibition "law "has
made available both the raw material
and the machinery needed for its
manufacture. " Malt Sugar i sirup is
made from the -same "grains as beer,
and may be made from "corn or pota
toes or any plant containing J starch.
Barley which "was used until recently
in the manufacture of f beer, can' 1 be
used- now to produce malt :siigar sir
up. - ; -.v!f ;;'
Breweries, with verv little change,
can be used and are now being used
for its manufacture, r Up to a ' cer
tain point the "process for ' making
malt sugar sirup the same a& the pro
cess for i making r Deer. Evap6rating ,
ment required "b" j breweries Tto "" 'be
come malt". sugar sirup" factories.
Excellent Substitute for 'Sag&r
Malt sugar sirui looks very much
like maple sirup. It can be used if or
everything ?that-cane sugar is used
for. While its use on the table may
not be quite as conveientas-' sugar, it
is a most excellent '-'substitute "for
table use when sugar is not tbbe "had,
as it not only provides veetness but
is equal to sugar in food thie. hFor
cooking and bakinar purposes and for
making candy it is not only equal '- to
sugar in convenience -and f obd value
but is superior for some uses' because
it will not so readily crystallize, i .
Used in Manufacture of -Candy
Mialt ugar sirup is now being
sold in large quantities to commercial
bakeries and dandy ;and soft-orink
manufacturers who use it in place" of .
sugar The wholesale price; as quot
ed in recent advertisements'in trade
papers and elsewhere is' from 7 'to 9
cents per ' pound in ' barrel lots. Many
retail grocers do not handle it yet he- .
cause there has been ' little "demand v
for it on the ' part "of 'housewives.
Grocers can now 6btain r it and no
doubt will be glad to do so as the de
mand for it increases. Housewives
can and will conserve their dwindling
supply of sugar by using it in cook- -ing,
baking, and - homemade confec
tions,'and even on the table for sweet
ening coffee, oatmeal,? and desserts.
If the housewives want it, the grocerS
will get it.
Although malt sugar sirup ' is oe
ing called upon,-so far as ' household
use is concerned,- merely as a - pinch
hitter in the present 'emergency, Mthe
epecialists expect that it will make
such a batting average that it .- will
hereafter -have a regular place in the
batting order. This is a case "where
the substitute makes so good that 'the
regular,' whose; place it takes, may .
have to warm 'the bench. While it is
not likely that this new sweet wilTre
place sugar for the table' use - in
normal times, it nndoubtedly will
make a place for itself in the house- 1
hold as it is doing in the 'mariufac-
fture-of food products. It is ! an? ex
cellent, wholesome sirup and,' on ac
count of its delicious flavor, is sup
erior to sugar for some purposes : in
cooking and baking.
