    There is no ffructose in RMS  which is what matters. From the Wikipedia arfticle:

    Brown rice (malt) syrup, also known as rice syrup or rice malt, is a sweetener derived by culturing cooked rice with enzymes (usually from dried barley sprouts) to break down the starches, then straining off the liquid and reducing it by cooking until the desired consistency is reached. The final product is 45% maltose, 3% glucose, and 52% maltotriose.

    These sugars all metabolise as glucose and are therefore harmless.

    The 3% Rule [2% ?? ] relates to"sugars" on the Nutrition Information Panel. As a rough guide you cans assume 50%  of the total is fructose.
