In Response To: Why no Sucanat for B's??? (Lynn)
Much like certain preparations of soy. In essence, the enzyme digests your blood type. Not so good for the mucus of your GI tract. It appears to be in the mineral (or ash) portion of the food, which is much lower in the other refined commercial forms. Prolonged boiling (as in molasses making) inactivates it.
As an avoid it is only a Tier II value (optional in otherwise healthy individuals), so don't get too bent out of shape. B non secretors may want to take this more seriously though, expecially if obese; and B secretors if prone to gut permiablility issues.
