Surprise! Rice isn’t just a grain it also makes a great natural sweetener. Organic Brown Rice Malt Syrup is made from fermented brown rice. The sprouts have enzymes that help break down complex carbohydrates in the rice creating a more soluble form of ‘sugar’. This natural sweetener has more nutrition than common white sugar and does not cause blood sugar spikes like sucrose and fructose do. Organic Brown Rice Malt Syrup is only half as sweet as sugar and comes in a liquid form for easy use.
