Organic Brown Rice Syrup is a natural sweetener made by steeping whole brown rice with a special enzyme preparation derived from “koji.” It's amazing how this process transforms steamed rice into syrup. It is made without the use of any cane or beet sugars, corn syrups, or other refined sweeteners of any kind. Brown rice syrup can be used in baked goods, sauces, marinades, and for other cooking purposes.
The Tropical Traditions Organic Brown Rice Syrup comes in a 16 oz glass jar. The color is brownish golden and the syrup pours out easily for measuring. The consistency reminds me of agave syrup or maple syrup. This brown rice syrup is USDA certified organic, gluten free and can be used by people on hypoallergenic diets. The taste is not overly sweet. One tablespoon of Tropical Traditions Organic Brown Rice Syrup has 60 calories, 15.5 grams of carbs and 8.5 grams of sugars. I like the versatility of the brown rice syrup - I can use it to sweeten my coffee, tea or oatmeal in the morning, or to bake delicious coconut oatmeal cookies for an afternoon snack.
There are many other recipes using brown rice syrup that I plan to try - including homemade honey chocolate (that would actually be homemade brown rice syrup chocolate), granola and coconut cream bark, and easy coconut macaroons. Yum!
