Due to its composition and lower glycaemic index it doesn’t burden the pancreas. Compared to ordinary sugar it sweetens without causing gastric acidity (pH is higher), and even contributes to the acidification of the body (acting as an alkaline). At the same time it doesn’t cause depletion of some of the important minerals in the human body unlike the commonly used refined sugar. The advantage of rice syrup is zero fructose content. Excessive intake of fructose is associated with many diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, vaginal mycosis and many others. 100 g of rice syrup contains about 45 g maltose, 29 g glucose and 22 g polysaccharides.
