Brown rice flour is a natural sweetener that is less effective than sugar or honey. The flour has a smooth, slightly nutty taste. Made from brown rice, the syrup works well as a direct replacement for corn syrup, honey, and molasses. You can also use the syrup as a substitute for granulated sugar and brown sugar, although you need to slightly reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe to compensate for the liquid volume of the syrup.
