Brown Rice Syrup
Posted Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 12:53 PM

Hello
A few recipes state brown rice syrup as an ingredient BUT I can't find it anywhere!

I've used agar syrup (rich & dark version rather than light) as a substitute but as I've never tried brs I have no idea how similar they are.

I've tried Waitrose - a very good UK based supermarket, a large Indian supermarket & a large Oriental supermarket, no luck in fact no one has even heard of it.

Any suggestions?

You might want to substitute something like maple syrup or agave nectar for brown rice syrup (although start off with less because I think brown rice syrup is very subtle). It's a popular macrobiotic product but not always easy to find.

Hi Susan

Thanks - I used agave - not that my auto-spell check would know! BUT it did end up quite sweet.

I'd like to try the orange oatmeal pancakes but I haven't got a clue about what to use instead of orange juice concentrate. Any ideas??

Thanks
Carli

You could use fresh orange juice instead, but it won't be as flavorful. Or you could try orange extract, if there is such a thing. I actually prefer the juice itself to the concentrate; in my opinion, concentrate is too sweet.

Great, thank you, I'll juice a couple of oranges.
