    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I saw a candy item at Costco yesterday it looked so good. One of the ingreidients is Rice Malt. Anyone know what that is? I have never heard of it.

Malt is made by sprouting grains until the shoot appears. At this point much of the carbohydrate in the grain has turned to sugar, which is intended to support the growth of the new plant. The sprouted grain is immediately dried and roasted, then the sugar is extracted at a low enough temperature not to cook the remaining starch. The sweet liquid is boiled down until thick as molasses.

Rice malt should be gluten-free unless there is cross-contamination. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
