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.
