Tropical Traditions Organic Brown Rice Syrup Review/Giveaway!!

I love getting products from Tropical Traditions to try in my home.  I have tried food products, cleaning products and bath and beauty products.  I was intrigued with the Organic Brown Rice Syrup.  I hate using corn syrup in anything. But this product is very similar (in form, but not ingredients) and can be used in place of corn syrup or even honey!  I made some granola bars and also the Chewy Crispy Rice Bites (see below).   I like using products like this that are good and healthy for you.  Use this product with no regret!

Organic Brown Rice Syrup - 16 oz.


  • Gluten Free
  • Certified Organic
  • Ideal sweetener for hypoallergenic diets
  • Easy to digest
  • Great source of sustainable energy
  • Non-distinct flavor
  • Complements a wide variety of foods
"Tropical Traditions Certified Organic Brown Rice Syrup is a natural sweetener produced by steeping whole brown rice with a special enzyme preparation derived from “koji.” This process transforms the steamed grain into a smooth flavored, pleasantly sweet syrup. It is made without the use of any cane or beet sugars (no cane juice crystals), corn syrups, or other refined sweeteners of any kind. Organic Brown Rice Syrup is an excellent sweetener for all baked goods, in the preparation of sauces or marinades, and for general cooking purposes."

We made Chewy Crispy Rice Bites.

Yield: approximately 2 dozen small balls
Preparation Time: 5 minutes

1/2 cup almond butter (or other nut butter of choice or coconut cream concentrate)
1/3 cup brown rice syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups brown rice cereal (I just used Rice Crispies)
1/4 cup shredded coconut

Mix the almond butter and brown rice syrup together in a medium saucepan. Stir and heat until melted and bubbly; approximately 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and add vanilla extract. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.

Roll into small balls with oiled or wet hands to prevent sticking and chill in the refrigerator or freezer.
