Hey everyone!

Is molasses gluten-free? The label simply reads, "unsulphured black strap molasses."

Thanks,

Jill, I don't know for sure.. but I just put Molasses and gluten-free in yahoo, did a search, and found quite a few gluten-free recipes that use molasses. Also found a wesbite called the gluten free market, that has products with molasses in them. So think it's a safe guess to say it is gluten-free.

To be extra safe, could call the company for any contamination issues?

I did once have a doctor tell me that popcorn isn't good for a healing or unhealthy intestines though.. because the hard part of the popcorn (no clue it's name, ugh, lol) can be a bit rough on it. Now, I don't know if that's true or not.. he was more a Eastern medicine guy.. but thought I'd pass that info on?

Oh well.. good luck with that, I know I'd love to eat some right now.. Mmmm.. *drools like Homer Simpson*

Try yahoo or google, not just this website! =P

Did another search on yahoo, since google scares me, lol.

Found this.

Molasses Cookies

Recipe from the website gluten free.com, and for the molasses cookies, it just says molasses.. no fancy gluten-free name brand or anything. =)

Anyway, it's from a tree, Molasses is, isn't it? And trees are gluten-free last time I checked.. so unless they put gluten in it for some silly reason, should be safe. When I was in 1st grade, we just cooked it over heat, didn't add anything.. err.. or maybe that was maple from a maple tree? Argh..

Hopefully that didn't confuse ya, cuz it did me! Sorry.

molasses is a sugar. It is the end product after boiling down juice from sugar cane. It must be OK since it is just sugar. I son't think they add anythnig when they make it. You can look it up in the dictionary. It has a very distinct flavor. If you ever ate ginger snaps they are flavored by the molasses.

enjoy.

Deb :D

Hey Jill,

Don't forget to make sure the ginger snaps are gluten-free. They are made with flour in the pre made ones I have eaten. I'm sure someone out there can suggest a gluten-free varity. Good luck. They are very yummy. hope you find a good gluten-free one.

Deb :wub:

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
