Default Help, I can't find the calorie count anywhere for malted milk powder!

I want to make a malt with just carb countdown chocholate milk and malt powder, but I have no idea if this would even be a "healthy" shake because I have no idea how many calories are in malt powder. Anyone have an idea per tablespoon?

Doesn't the malt powder have nutritional info on the label?

Yes, it should be on the package. However, I have malted milk power (Ovaltine brand) and there are 80 calories in 4 tablespoons.

20 cals a tablespoon.

Are you planning a party?

I love malted milk, but I've never seen a sugar free version. I'd take a guess that it contains a lot of extra calories.

Maybe you can donate it to a shelter or something, so you won't be tempted.

I tend to agree with carnie on this, DairyQueen. Having a big tin of malted milk mix around can't be a good thing. Look at it like this - What if the tin contains several thousand calories worth of mix. Drinking it all will mean you may gain a pound or two of fat. This is why I only buy a small cone of ice cream somewhere instead of buying a half gallon carton at the supermarket, so I won't be tempted to eat more than I should. "Buy a tub, eat a tub" Maybe you can get rid of the ice cream shop size tin of malted milk powder. If you crave a malted, to go the ice cream shop and order just one small serving, and enjoy it as a special treat.

Good luck
