Our unsulphured organic blackstrap molasses is made from pure, mature sugar cane. Unsulphured means that the cane has been allowed to ripen naturally in the field. Sulphured molasses, on the other hand, is made from young sugar cane that requires the addition of sulphur dioxide to keep it fresh. The cane is harvested and then crushed into a juice. The juice is then condensed through a boiling process which promotes the crystallization of the sugar.
There are several different varieties of molasses depending on whether it is from the first boiling, second boiling or third boiling. Blackstrap is from the third boiling. By the third boiling, most of the sucrose from the original juice has been crystallized and removed. This makes blackstrap molasses be the darkest and thickest of all the different types as well as have the most robust, strong flavor (sometimes it is described as slightly bitter). Blackstrap molasses is known to contain a significant amount of micronutrients including calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese.
Organic Blackstrap Molasses is also a good source of potassium. Long sold as dietary supplement, it is also used in baking and cooking to make gingerbread, cookies, BBQ sauce and marinades.
