Rice Brown Syrup Organic
AAA
Organic Brown Rice Syrup (OBRS) is a sweetener derived from rice. It is used mainly as a healthier alternative to high fructose corn syrup in organic food products. In infant formulas, OBRS is often the main ingredient. Although  OBRS is produced from natural sources, it can be harmful due to the high concentration of arsenic found in brown rice. Researchers suggest that arsenic exposure early in life may affect infants' health during childhood as well as in adult life.   Reference: 1.
