  • whats the deal with brown rice syrup?

    I picked up some new version of the larabar called uber in bananas foster flavor before I looked at the ingredients. Im just curious what the consensus on that is.

    If is a sweetener, prob better than GMOd high fructose corn syrup but still high GI.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

      It's a slow release sugar, made/marketed originally for macrobiotics, now its gone pretty much mainstream. Better than maple syrup imo & fwiw. Even though it's from a grain(fermented sweet brown rice, fairly benign), I consider this a Primal 'ok' sugar to use on occasion.

        LaraBar is the simplest, cleanest commercial bar out in the American marketplace that I know of. Plus it won't cost you a fortune to have it. A safe snack to keep in your glovebox of your car or in your backpack in case you get the munchies out in the world...

          Yeah I've had them before I just never would have thought to have to look at the ingredients of their bars for stuff like this. Its isn't in any of their other stuff.

            I haven't had the bananas foster flavor yet, but I do eat Larabars. I also have a jar of brown rice syrup in the fridge, from Lundberg Farms, for the celiac daughter to experiment with as she learns to cook for herself - it has a somewhat buttery-butterscotchy flavor, and this is most likely why they chose to use it in the bananas-foster-flavor Larabar, seeing as how the Larabars are both dairy and gluten free all the time.
