Blackstrap Molasses (organic) - 450g
Blackstrap molasses is a byproduct of sugar production.
Sugar production starts with boiling sugarcane juice to crystalize the sugar, which is then filtered to separate it from the juice. This leaves a thick, brown liquid called molasses.
It’s boiled two more times to create blackstrap, which is even thicker and darker than regular molasses and characterized by a bitter taste.
Because it’s boiled three times, blackstrap molasses is more nutrient-dense than other types of molasses, which explains why it has recently gained popularity as a supplement.
People often use it as a sweetener, spread, or topping for yogurt or oatmeal. Although it’s also a popular home remedy for anemia, arthritis, stress, PMS symptoms, and blood sugar spikes, few of these remedies are supported by science.
Therefore, you may want to know whether using blackstrap as a sweetener or supplement is healthy after all.
