Okay, did a bit more online research, trying to find a definition of blackstrap molasses, treacle and goden syrup.
From various sites and wikis, it appears that treacle is a version of molasses.The Brits refer to it as treacle, while the Yanks molasses. (slang not mean't in a derogatory fashion).
The following cooking site defined the different syrups and further defined treacle into dak and lighthttp://www.foodsubs.com/Syrups.html
Dark treacle = UK version of blackstrap molasses
Light treacle = golden syrup = Cane juice.A syrup made from evaporating ace juice until it is dak and syrupy. (which was how the thread on HomeDistiller described fancy molasses) This seems to sort of be verified by the CSR description of golden syrup which defines it as a blend of cane syrups.
Now, the problem of any interest research is verifying your results.
comments or confirmation from anyone?
