Brown Rice Syrup Brown rice syrup is made from boiled brown rice, and has a gooey consistency like thick honey. It's extremely sweet, and has a distinct, lightly butterscotch flavor. The syrup contains trace minerals of vitamin B, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin K, but that doesn't mean it's completely healthy: This is another example of a sweetener that's a better option for you than refined sugar because it won't digest as rapidly, but it still contains as many calories.
Form: Syrup Uses: Bake it into granola or granola bars, muffins, brownies, and breads, substituting 1 1/4 cup brown rice syrup for 1 cup sugar. The flavor is too overpowering for lighter desserts. You can also use it as you would maple syrup, on pancakes and oatmeal. Glycemic Index: 25
