Brown Rice Syrup

I was looking through on e of my "forbidden list" from the hospital, and noticed that on the list of items was brown rice syrup. Does anybody know why? It seems non- intuitive that a rice product would be out. I do better with rules if I know the reasons behind them)

Hi Libby,

It might be that they add something to it, like caramel coloring or something that makes it not gluten-free. I have a gluten-free cookbook that says Lundberg brand brown rice syrup is gluten free. So I suppose it depends on the brand...

God bless,

Mariann :)

--they might add a malt... Seems like I read that somewhere...

Last time I tried a brown rice syrup it made me "gluten-sick"! But, I don't remember the brand!

Can't imagine why your list would say that, unless you're also sweetener-free.

A great Rice Krispies sub, by Erehwon (pretty sure WIDEly enjoyed by celiacs), has it, as does my hazelnut milk.

I've never had a problem w/ either, nor w/ any other product w/ brown rice syrup.

I've also never heard of it having gluten.

And I'm really quite surprised to see others looking to blame it for glutening symptoms.

I've always thought the syrup itself is made from brown rice & brown rice only, tho it's often in products w/ a long list of ingred.

My bottle of Lundberg Sweet Dreams Brown Rice Syrup says gluten free in big letters on the back and also "is gluten-free and wheat-free". The only ingredients listed are: organic brown rice, pure filtered water.

Brown rice syrup often contains barley. For example, the Lundberg brand has always been safe, but there was a time when the brown rice syrup in Mrs. Mays products contained barley. You have to check on it to be safe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_rice_syrup

Brown rice syrup is a sweetener derived by culturing cooked rice with enzymes (usually from dried barley sprouts) to break down the starches, then straining off the liquid and cooking it until the desired consistency is reached. The final product is roughly 50% soluble complex carbohydrates, 45% maltose, and 3% glucose. The glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream immediately, while the maltose takes up to one and a half hours to be digested (see glycemic index), and the complex carbohydrates take from two to three hours, providing a steady supply of energy. Rice syrup has a shelf life of about a year, and once opened, should be stored in a cool, dry place.

Keep in mind that the original post was over four years ago . . . as we all know, labels change. Some products may have had gluten then and OK now and vice versa.

In regards to brown rice syrup, it is known to be high in arsenic even in organic foods.  It is something to be avoided.  Rice flour also has arsenic in it and how much depends on where it is grown.

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
