    Do you know what kind of starch syrup they use to make these? I’ve been wanting to try them, but I’m allergic to corn starch and corn syrup. Since these are a Japanese treat, I’m assuming they are made of rice starch?

      Thank you for commenting.
      According to this online encyclopedia, in ancient Japan, starch syrup seems to have been made from rice. But it says in modern times the main ingredients are potatoes/corn. And I’m not sure what kind of starch syrup Morinaga is using, for the ingredients label says just “Mizuame (水あめ: starch syrup).
