Rice syrup is another ingredient to question. The “rice” in its name can lead you to believe that the ingredient is automatically gluten-free. But while most rice syrup used in North America is gluten-free as it’s made from white or brown rice, barley malt enzymes may be used to manufacture this refined sweetener. And even though the gluten left behind may be negligible, you may choose not to partake. The best bet is to call the manufacturer to make sure the product is safe when rice syrup is listed in the ingredients.
