Blackstrap molasses is the highest and most nutritious grade of molasses. It contains all the minerals and nutrients absorbed by the sugar cane, so it is a delicious way to provide many of the vitamins and minerals that our bodies need every day—in a most natural form.
Because blackstrap molasses has a low glycemic level, it is a good sugar substitute for diabetics and other people who want to avoid sharp rises in their blood sugar levels. Also, blackstrap contains no fat and only 32 calories per teaspoon, so it’s a ideal sweetener for someone on a weight loss diet.
Listen as Kira and Bill Van Ittersum relate the many health benefits of blackstrap molasses and their personal experience using it daily.
