Blackstrap molasses is a sweet syrup made from boiling sugar cane juice. The third boiling produces the darker, more bitter blackstrap molasses.
Blackstrap molasses is a more concentrated source of vitamins and minerals. It is a source of iron, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium, and B vitamins.
When producing blackstrap molasses, some sucrose is often removed by processors for use as table sugar. This reduces the relative sucrose content somewhat, though sugar remains.
