Malt in bread

I've been looking at a website called the Artisan dot net - all bread and pasta recipes. Several of the recipes call for Malt. Only a little i.e. 1/4 teaspoon.
I've looked for this in baking sections at Safeway and Giant.
Can someone tell me what it is and if I'm looking in the correct place. Or is it a specialty item only found in Italian food shops? Or is it no more than the malt you put in milkshakes?

That makes sense.
Darn it. We managed to get a lift in a real motor vehicle over to Annapolis last Wednesday and went to Whole Foods for a soup lunch. Completely forgot to look for the malt but that would have been an ideal place. :(
Will have to wait until we sail up to Washington next weekend or thereabouts.
