Often remembered as the distinct flavor in baked beans and holiday gingerbread cookies, this thick syrup is more than just a teaspoon of sugar! Processing of blackstrap molasses retains nutrients unlike ordinary table sugar. Manganese, copper, iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium are a few of the stars. Did you know that in comparison to red meat, this type of molasses provides more iron for fewer calories? Just remember to avoid a heavy hand when adding to your NutriBlast if you are cautious about total sugar load.

Selection Process

Look for blackstrap molasses that is not processed with sulphur, a chemical that some people are highly sensitive to. It stores best in the refrigerator or a cool, dry place.
