Certified Organic Natural Sweetener 100% Pure NOW? Brown Rice Syrup is a healthy, natural sweetener with a mild, buttery flavor and a delicate sweetness that makes it ideal for use in baking and desserts.  Unlike simple sugars, such as monosaccharides and disaccharides, Brown Rice Syrup is a polysaccharide, or a complex sugar.  The unique structure of complex sugars allows them to be absorbed and broken down more slowly than simple sugars, avoiding rapid spikes in blood glucose.  Slower absorption also allows the body to utilize complex sugars for energy instead of having to store them as fat for later use.  Brown Rice Syrup is made by fermenting brown rice with special enzymes that break down the natural starch content of the rice.  This process produces a translucent syrup that's an excellent alternative to white and brown sugar.    Organic Products List
