Many manufacturers have switched to organic brown rice syrup as a healthier alternative to sweetening their products, but new research shows that this ingredient may have higher levels of Arsenic in it.
According to a study done at Dartmouth College, it is not only the syrup itself that has higher levels of arsenic, but also the products that it is used in. Products that use this syrup include baby formula, energy bars and cereal bars.
Although the Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulation protocol on the amount of arsenic that is considered safe in food, the Environmental Protection Agency does have a standard for safe drinking water. The amount that is found in this product was measured to be nearly six times the limit on what the EPA considers the safe for drinking water.
Researchers began the increasing trend that the product is being used. In the study, 17 baby formulas were tested and two of these products used organic brown rice syrup. The two formulas that are used the organic brown rice syrup showed arsenic levels that are 20 times more concentrated than the baby formulas that did not use it.
