Blackstrap Molasses

by Natural Health

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap Molasses is made from sugar cane by crushing or mashing the plant to extract its sugar. Then it is boiled three times to help crystallize the sugars so they may be extracted. What is left is a sweet black syrup filled with a high concentration of minerals and some vitamins. It is slightly less sweet than most refined sugars, and has a richer flavor.

Molasses is very high in manganese, copper, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin B6, and Selenium. It helps replenish iron, a key factor in energy production with helps you combat fatigue. In addition, iron helps you replenish calcium levels, a critical nutrient in bone health. Also, unlike some other sugars, molasses is usually a non-allergenic food. Add molasses to smoothies for added sweetness and rich flavor. Its high mineral content can help the body absorb nutrients in fresh fruits and veggies. It can also be used to make salad dressings, added to baked goods, or makes a tasty marinade for poultry.

Sometimes during the food manufacturing process, sulphur dioxide is used. This is a common ingredient in acid rain and not one that has health benefits for the body. That’s why it is recommended that you use organic unsulphured blackstrap molasses.
