Barley Malt Syrup Organic
Unlike refined sugar that is over 99 percent fast burning sugars like sucrose and fructose, barley malt syrup is 70 to 80 percent maltose with a very small percentage of glucose, sucrose, and fructose. Among sweeteners barley malt provides the most complex carbohydrates so the body metabolizes it much more gently and slowly than highly refined sugar. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified,
