One hundred years ago almost everybody used molasses as the only sweetener available—only the very rich had white sugar...

It contains about five times more calcium than milk, and is rich in B vitamins, which are important for the health of nerves, heart muscle and skin. Blackstrap Molasses also contains considerable amounts of copper, potassium, phosphorous.
Great in baked goods, confectionery items, biscuits and crackers, cookies, baked beans, table syrups & toppings, sweet and sour sauces, or eaten with peanut butter on a slice of bread.
Made from USA-grown, Organic sugar cane. Unsulphured.
Another use for Organic Blackstrap Molasses: Soil Amendment
Molasses is a good, quick source of energy for the various forms of microbes and soil life in a compost pile or the soil.
In fact molasses has long been a part of the common products used by Organic gardeners to bring greater health to their soils and plants, because it's a great source of carbohydrates that stimulates the growth of beneficial microorganisms.
For gardeners, blackstrap molasses (unsulphered) is the best choice because it is the most nutritionally valuable of the various types of molasses since it contains the greatest concentration of sulfur, potash, iron, and micronutrients from the original cane material. So it's not just the sugar content that makes molasses useful, but its trace minerals.
