What is rice syrup?
Organic rice syrup sometimes called brown rice syrup or organic rice malt syrup is a sugar substitute derived from cooking brown rice so that it breaks down and converts the rice and starches into sugars, mainly maltose and glucose. Importantly, brown rice syrup contains no fructose.
Rice syrup is popular because it is all natural and in many cases, organic being derived from rice that has been grown and harvested without the aid of chemicals, pesticides or genetically modified organisms. The syrup is popular with vegans as refined sugar is known sometimes to use bone char from animals in the refining process, whereas rice syrup does not.
