I have searched the archives and not found anything specifically about this. Has anyone figured out the difference between the varieties of molasses available? I only use it in baking a couple of family favorites, but have distinctly noticed a difference between "fancy" molasses and "cooking" molasses, the latter of which is a combination of fancy and blackstrap. Processing is often the killer for us, but then there is the decision "more natural MSG" vs "more processing" and are they the same thing in this instance. I discovered that I consistently have issues with the fancy molasses yet the cooking variety does not bother me. Would blackstrap molasses be the least hard on our systems or not? I know many on the list can't tolerate it in any form.

I only use unsulphured varieties of both regular and blackstrap and have been fine with both. Perhaps it is an issue of overprocessing or of sulfite amount present. All molasses is rich in natural glutamate, and perhaps the amount varies with different molasses products or with the processes used.

I am not sure I have seen unsuphured as a choice here in Canada but I will take another look at the health food store. Overall though, things are improving. A year ago I could not find any white sugar made from cane, and now suddenly it is everywhere. We are in the beet belt here, and about as far from sugar cane as we can be. I am ecstatic about any improvement in options!
