The reason "fantasy" Molasses is sweeter than the "green" molasses is corn....right? That's how they sweeten it?Corn sirup or some type of derivate?....The one I have is gluten-fre...but now, something's not right since I had some last week...

Sigh.....

Molasses is usually made from sugar cane which is very closely related to corn. There is also the possibility that some corn derivative was used as an anti-foaming agent, etc. during the processing of the molasses you reacted to. I avoid all cane sugars. I use Rogers white sugar (beet) with no problem and also honey from a local apiary. Store bought honey can be corn-taminated with corn syrup. If it is available where you live, there is a beet sugar syrup (from Germany) made from sugar beets that is safe...it is identical to molasses and very tasty! I forget the name but it comes in a glass jar and is dark like molasses.

Here is a site with a picture of the beet sugar syrup that is safe:
