Made with barley; there are two types of malt powder: diastatic and non-diastatic. Diastatic malt contains active enzymes that help break starch down into sugar, feeding the yeast, helping the bread to rise, and gives the bread a browner crust too. Non-diastatic malt doesn't have active enzymes, but it gives baked goods better flavor and a shinier, browner crust. It's used in everything from bagels to croissants to breakfast cereals. I have used non-diastatic for years and bought from King Arthur, see (above) betteirene's link to King Arthurs.

additional note: like heritagecook's (malted milk powder) King Arthur link too, assumed you are baking, whatever the case, I have been happy with their product in general vs. using syrup, because I don' t like dealing with the stickness...just my preference.
