Does anybody miss malted drinks? Ovaltine is the only one I can think of, though I’m sure there are others.

I ask because Cuban researchers are trying to make a malted drink out of sorghum, which is naturally gluten free.

If this comes off – and if its cheap enough – it will be interesting to see whether major manufacturers would be prepared to use sorghum-malt as flavouring instead of gluten-containing malt, for example in breakfast cereals. You’d think so – it would widen their market to include all the celiacs out there. But I guess it will depend on cost …
