Understanding brown rice syrup & barley malt extract

As sugar continues to become higher on the health agenda than it is now, I suspect sugar substitutes will become the new ‘low fat’.  Here’s a video on two that are worth getting your head around, and shows why they’re better options. I will mention that brown rice syrup and rice malt syrup are much the same thing so I may use those terms interchangeably. Enjoy!

Where to buy

Below are some places I found online with prices and delivery costs. This can make quite a difference, as my research shows. If you decide to order a few things, you obviously make a delivery charge more worthwhile. I have no affiliated links with these below, they are just some of the best I found after my own browsing. You might find some in your local health store which could work out more cost effective than online. £1.99 price, £5.50 delivery
