This deal is live again on 1/7/20

Amazon has a 3 pack of 13-Ounce Carnation Malted Milk (Original) $5.58 for one-time delivery or $5.30 with 5+ S&S items.

These are usually almost $4 for one container.

I purchased some of these in October. The "best by" date was well into the future, so there likely shouldn't be an issue with the "best by" date on this stock. Since this is a powder, this stuff will last well beyond that if you keep it dry. Can put it in your doomsday shelters.

This is not the same as "Diastatic Malt" that is often used in bread baking, but does have other uses in baking and is great in waffles.

I drink 3 or 4 of these every day and they are delicious:

1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 large teaspoon malt powder
A few drops of vanillin
1/2 the added liquid is cold brew coffee
1/2 the added liquid is milk

A chocolatey, malty, cold brew protein shake

This sounds amazing! Is this high calorie?

Do you have any Asian markets near you? Mine carries the European version of Ovaltine which is the original recipe that they used to use back when I was growing up. Better ingredients and less sugar.
I'd love to try the European version, do you have a brand name please? Thanks!

The original, Swiss version is "Ovomaltine" and contains no added sugar. Note the spelling. Ovaltine was actually a typographical error when the original producer, Wander AG, applied for a trademark in the UK. If it doesn't say Ovomaltine, it's not the original Swiss version. AFAIK, all versions of Ovaltine contain added sugar.

It contains cocoa and the malt flavor is definitely stronger due a higher concentration of barley malt and less milk powder, so it's not exactly the same thing as the Carnation.

It's relatively high calorie, but a lot of it is from protein, so the added fat and sugar help round it out, plus you get the benefits of coffee. I feel absolutely no guilt in drinking it, AND IT IS AMAZING
I use the Myprotein chocolate smooth flavor, and deals are posted on here constantly.

This is the "European" version that I buy. I found it on Amazon as well. It is still branded as "Ovaltine" but it comes in a glass bottle and the ingredients are different. At my 99 Ranch Market, it is on the shelf right next to the American version of Ovaltine.

Another reply mentioned a Swiss version under a different name "Ovomaltine". I haven't seen that here personally but I found that on Amazon as well. This appears to make 3 different variations of Ovaltine. According to the Amazon information, Ovomaltine does contain sugar as well though (via fructose). The European version uses tapioca syrup. Both the "European" and Swiss versions of Ovaltine probably have significantly less sugar than the American version though, which is way too sweet compared to the originals.

https://www.amazon.com/Ovomaltine...747&sr=8-8

https://www.amazon.com/Wander-AG-...904&sr=8-3

***

FYI - For comparison, sugar is literally the first ingredient on the American version of Ovaltine and it is 9g of sugar per 11g serving (80% sugar). On both the European and Swiss versions the first ingredient is the malt and sugar is the 4th ingredient.

***

Additional Edit: I did more research and found out that the "European" version is basically the UK version. So the 3 main versions are: Swiss, UK, American.

Here is what an Amazon reviewer said about the Swiss vs UK versions:

"The original ovaltine chocolate flavor. This is the Swiss made German/Austria version. Composition: 51% Barley malt extract to 13% Cocoa powder ratio. This contrast to the British version with 73% Barley malt extract to 8% cocoa powder. So if you prefer chocolate flavor this version under review is your best bet."

I happen to really like the taste of malt which is probably why I like the European version which is ~73% malt. I could see why some may prefer the Swiss version though if you want a more chocolatey taste. I've never tried the Swiss version to compare (or if I have, I don't remember).

The American version is 80% sugar...

I have a few single-portion packs of the Swiss version that I purloined from the Swiss Air lounge in Zürich at some point that I found recently. 65% barley malt. Doesn't list the % of cocoa.Also looked it up on ovomaltine.ch The Swiss version uses dried condensed milk as opposed to the whey or "milk serum" so they do sneak in some sugar, but not pure crystalline sugar like the others. Also, the formulation of the portion pack seems to be slightly different than what the Swiss website says. Don't know if they reformulated (the pack I have is a few years old).

I checked their German site, Ovomaltine.de and that shows the German product as having 51% Barley malt and 13% cocoa.

So there are at least 3 different formulations just in Europe. Nutella has a bunch of different formulations in Europe too, as a bonus side fact.

Per 100g
UK: 370 Calories 1.9g Fat, 80g carbs of which 49g are sugars, 6g protein, 4.3g fiber
Germany (Rest of Europe?): 376 Calories, 2g fat, 78g carbs of which 51 are sugars, 4g fiber, 9.4g Protein
Swiss: 372 calories, 2g fat, 74.2g carbs of which 40.2 are sugars, 3.9g fiber, 12.2g protein

So, calorie count is more or less the same across the board. Swiss has a fair bit less sugar, but less malt.

Anyway, my knowledge of Ovomaltine/Ovaltine is now expanded more than necessary.

For immediate delivery, yes, but it can be ordered again. "In stock on February 2, 2020.
Order it now." For a future S&S order, still good.

Also, from my experience, those dates are very conservative and items usually come much quicker, but YMMV

They will all expire before you ever finish one... Or at least I hope. I had one and we only used about a fifth of it before it went bad.
Does it really go bad, or is it a stale taste in a year or two after the date. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Hoosier Hill Farm that seems to sell a lot of dried foods for "preppers" and the like list a "best by" of 22-24 months.This company [briess.com] that manufactures malted milk powder for commercial uses puts a 24 month "best by." Carnation is quite conservative in their dating.

The main problem is that it is a hygroscopic subtance, so it tends to absorb moisture from the environment. An opened container forgotten in the back of a pantry will have higher chance of turning to a brick. A sealed container will definitely be safe for use past whatever is on the container, and it would definitely take a while for any stale/rancid taste to show up. Even if that happens, as long as it is still a free flowing powder, it would still be safe, but less palatable.
