Production of high quality sprouted grains and pulses requires specific varieties and trait genetics
Production of germinated and gluten-free products is based on genetic properties of the plant. When striving for top quality malt, special varieties are needed. Golden Malt cooperates with two large plant breeders Sejet and CSIRO to developed tailored barley varieties. During the development work the contract production is based on existing crop varieties.
Golden Malt will provide locally produced high quality products from germinated crops
Farmer group to be set up for contract production
Other gluten-free products such as buckwheat, peas, beans, quinoa and millet
Field block designed and managed crop production using existing and real-time data (climate, weather, data measured from plants)
Gluten-free barley will be the flagship product of Golden Malt.
Golden Malt, Sejet and CSIRO cooperate to develop an inherently gluten-free barley malt. Golden Malt will sell it exclusively in the Northern Europe. The development will take altogether ca. 5 years. (Picture: Director Birger Eriksen and barley breeder Lene Krusell of Sejet Plant Breeding)
Local distils have a clear market advantage
Northern conditions create unique opportunity to produce premium quality whiskey malt barley. Optimized genetics and white nights lead to extremely high enzyme activity which is an essential feature of our whiskey malt.
