Malted Milk Powder

Is there one brand of malted milk powder that's more flavorful than another? The only brand I can find is Carnation. I use it instead of sugar in pancakes to give them that classic diner taste.

  1. I can't think of the other brand I've seen in stores, but you can also order malted milk powder from King Arthur Flour.

      Oooh I haven't looked at a KAF catalog in too long! I will have to try their malted milk powder. Thanks for the tip!

        I've also bought malt sugar from the bulk section of natural foods store.

    2. I remember my Mom used to have a box/tin of Nestle's. But I don't think I have seen it in grocery stores forever.

      1. I use Horlick's which I think is from the UK. You can possibly find it at a British food specialty store. It has a sweeter flavor than Carnation's.

            The Horlicks bottle that I have was made in Jamaica under a UK license. I've bought a bottle in Canada, and this one at an Asian grocery.

              I saw Horlicks just the other day at the No-Frills here in Toronto. Also have seen it at Metro . . . Ovaltine is kind of malty too but I don't think as much so as Horlicks.

          2. Horlicks made in England is also sold in Indo/pak grocery stores
