Sheila Dillon investigates the role malt plays in our drinks and diet. Malt is a natural ingredient in many but many people won't realise how ubiquitous it is as well as it being an important export for the country. Sheila talks to a distiller, a baker and a brewer about malt's remarkable properties and visits a traditional maltster to find out how malt is made.
