nutritional information



Note

Blackstrap molasses is a sweetener that is actually healthy.  It is high in iron and calcium.  Molasses is an excellent source of copper and manganese and also a very good source of potassium and magnesium.  Look for unsulphured blackstrap molasses because it doesn’t contain sulfur, to which some people are sensitive, and it also tastes better.
