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:

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
