Old English Dish Is Now Surpassed
"by a Malted Grain Food.
Writing on the food problem and
advocating a rational health diet. Dr.
Joslah Oldflcld. author of "The Claims
of Common Life" and other well
known works, declares a sufficiency of
grain food Is necessary and refers to
the old English dish of frumenty as a
most excellent article of food. He
also speaks of malted grain as a food
for increasing years. This eminent
author thus strikes the very lteynote
of health and strength.
There Is a modem food which em
braces all the qualities of frumenty
and has even more, for It Is malted
grain. Wc refer to Malta-Vita all
pure grain and nothing1 else.
Malta-VUa, Is made by an extended
and elaborated process of the old way
of making- frumenty. The whole wheat
grain Is thoroughly cleaned, then
boiled In water and cooked in steam
to gelatinize the starch. After the
starch cells have broken down, the
wheat is mixed with pure barley malt
extract, which converts the gelatin
ized starch Into maltose, or malt su
gar, highly nutritious and easily di
gested even by the weakest stomachs.
Then each grain of wheat Is rolled
Into little wafer flakes and goes to the
great ovens, where, under intense
heat. It Is baked crisp and brown,
"done to a turn," and ready for your
