What is the difference between Blackstrap & Barbados Old Fashioned Molasses?
Blackstrap Molasses has had more of the sugar extracted from it, which makes it less sweet (more bitter) but contains a higher amount of iron.
Barbados Old-Fashioned Molasses on the other hand, hasn’t had so much of the sugar removed so it is sweeter, but doesn’t have the higher concentration of iron. Barbados Molasses is lighter in color and sweeter than Blackstrap and with a more delicate flavor.
Barbados Molasses has the highest sugar content and the lowest mineral content. Sulfured molasses is made from young sugar cane.
Sulfur dioxide, which acts as a preservative, is added during the sugar extraction process.
Made from mature sugar cane, which does not require such treatment. (Refrigerate after opening)
Unsulphured Blackstrap molasses is easily managed as a tonic:
Mixing a tablespoon or two with a glass of warm water works well as a mineral tonic. Some have used this mix three times a day as a remedy for extreme conditions.
Restoring or maintaining health through natural foods requires a sustained intake over time, but is still less expensive than medications or even supplements. And the results are real and permanent without side effects.
The three grades of molasses are:
1. Mild or Barbados, also known as first grade molasses.
2. Dark, or second grade molasses.
3. Blackstrap, third grade molasses
These grades may be sulphured or unsulphured..
To make molasses, the cane of a sugar plant is harvested and stripped of its leaves. Its juice is extracted usually by crushing or mashing, but also by cutting.
The juice is boiled to concentrate it, which promotes the crystallization of the sugar. The result of this first boiling and of the sugar crystals is first molasses, which has the highest sugar content because comparatively little sugar has been extracted from the source.
The second molasses is created from a second boiling and sugar extraction, and has a slight bitter tinge to its taste.
The third boiling of the sugar syrup yields Blackstrap molasses, known for its robust flavor.
 The term is an Americanism dating from around 1920.
The majority of sucrose from the original juice has been crystallized and removed. The calorie content of Blackstrap molasses is still mostly from the small remaining sugar content.
 However, unlike refined sugars, it contains trace amounts of vitamins and significant amounts of several minerals.
Blackstrap molasses is a source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron; one tablespoon provides up to 20% of the daily value of each of those nutrients.
 Blackstrap has long been sold as a health supplement. It is also used in the manufacture of ethyl alcohol for industry and as an ingredient in cattle feed.
Where Does Molasses Come From?
Many people wonder what molasses is made of. Well, no secret ingredients here; molasses is a by-product from the process that turns sugar beet or cane into sugar.
Benefits of Blackstrap Molasses: Calcium: Calcium is one of the important minerals required by our body. It is needed for forming and maintaining strong bones and teeth.
Two teaspoons of Blackstrap molasses meets 11.8% of our daily need for calcium. It is involved in a variety of physiological activities essential to life including:
Calcium binds to and removes toxins from the colon, thus reducing the risk of colon cancer, and because it is involved in nerve conduction, may help prevent migraine attacks.
Calcium is one of the most important minerals in the body and is involved in a variety of physiological activities essential to life, including:
The ability of the heart and other muscles to contract:
The conduction of nerve impulses to and from the brain Regulation of enzyme activity Cell membrane function.
Calcium is needed to form and maintain strong bones and teeth during youth and adolescence; to help prevent the loss of bone that can occur during menopause and as a result of rheumatoid arthritis.
It is essential not only for bones and cell energy production, but is also needed for regulating calcium levels. It controls the flow of calcium in nerve cells. Two teaspoons of Blackstrap molasses daily provides 7.3% value for magnesium.
Copper is an essential component of many enzymes, plays a role in a wide range of physiological processes including iron utilization, elimination of free radicals, development of bone and connective tissue, and the production of the skin and hair pigment called melanin.
It can help in controlling good and bad cholesterol and other physiological processes in the body.
Numerous health problems can develop when Copper intake is inadequate:
Ruptured blood vessels Osteoporosis
Joint problems such as rheumatoid arthritis
Elevated LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduced HDL (good) cholesterol levels Irregular heartbeat
Increased susceptibility to infections
Using two teaspoons of Blackstrap Molasses to sweeten your morning cereal and the coffee or tea you drink during the day will supply you with 14.0% of the daily recommended value for copper.
Numerous health problems can develop when copper intake is inadequate, including iron deficiency anemia, ruptured blood vessels, osteoporosis, joint problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, brain disturbances, elevated LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduced HDL (good) cholesterol levels, irregular heartbeat, and increased susceptibility to infections.
It helps in the production of protein and carbohydrates and is important for a healthy nervous system.
Just two teaspoons of the syrup will supply 18.0% of the day's needs for manganese.
It is also a critical component of an important antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is found exclusively inside the body’s mitochondria (the oxygen-based energy factories inside most of our cells) where it provides protection against damage from the free radicals produced during energy production.
Blackstrap Molasses is a very good source of iron. Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with Blackstrap molasses is a good idea--especially because, in comparison to red meat, a well known source of iron.
Blackstrap Molasses provides more iron for less calories and is totally fat-free. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism; and, if you're pregnant or lactating, your needs for iron increase.
Growing children and adolescents also have increased needs for iron. Just 2 teaspoons of Blackstrap Molasses will sweetly provide you with 13.3% of the daily recommended value for iron.
Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with Blackstrap Molasses is a good idea–especially because, in comparison to red meat, a well known source of iron, Blackstrap Molasses provides more iron for less calories and is totally fat-free.
It is important for the smooth functioning of the muscle and the nervous system. It helps to maintain the body's electrolyte and pH balance.
Two teaspoons daily will provide you with 9.7% recommended value of potassium.
Like calcium, Potassium plays an important role in muscle contraction and nerve transmission. When potassium is deficient in the diet, activity of both muscles and nerves can become compromised.
When potassium levels drop too low, muscles get weak and athletes tire more easily during exercise, as potassium deficiency causes a decrease in glycogen (the fuel used by exercising muscles) storage.
Curative Powers of Blackstrap Molasses:
It has been known to help in curing fibroid, anemia, anxiety, constipation, arthritic pain, heart palpitations, etc. It also helps to turn gray hair back to its original color.
Blackstrap Molasses is a sweetener that is actually good for you. Unlike refined white sugar and corn syrup (stripped of virtually all nutrients except simple carbohydrates) or artificial sweeteners like saccharine or aspartame (provide no useful nutrients and have been shown to cause health problems in sensitive individuals),
Blackstrap Molasses is a healthful sweetener that contains significant amounts of a variety of minerals that promote your health (unlike agave: Is Agave Nectar a Health Scam?).
This trace mineral helps:
Produces energy from protein and carbohydrates - The synthesis of fatty acids that are important for a healthy nervous system and in the production of cholesterol that is used by the body to produce sex hormones.
In addition to the above, Blackstrap Molasses is a good source of vitamin B6 and Selenium. It has 16 calories, per teaspoon, which is the same as that of sugar.
It is necessary for healthy bones and energy production. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is found in our bones. While some helps to give bones their physical structure, the rest is found on the surface of the bone where it is stored for the body to draw upon as needed.
Magnesium, by balancing calcium, helps regulate nerve and muscle tone.
In many nerve cells, magnesium serves as Nature’s own calcium channel blocker, preventing calcium from rushing into the nerve cell and activating the nerve. By blocking calcium’s entry, magnesium keeps our nerves (and the blood vessels and muscles they enervate) relaxed.
Insufficient magnesium can thus contribute to high blood pressure, muscle spasms (including spasms of the heart muscle or the spasms of the airways symptomatic of asthma), and migraine headaches, as well as muscle cramps, tension, soreness and fatigue.
If our diet provides us with too little magnesium, however, calcium can gain free entry, and the nerve cell can become over-activated, sending too many messages and causing excessive contraction.
Insufficient magnesium can thus contribute to:
High blood pressure Muscle spasms (including spasms of the heart muscle or the spasms of airways symptomatic of asthma)
In two teaspoons of Blackstrap Molasses, you will receive:
7.3% of the daily value for magnesium. Switching from nutrient-poor sweeteners like white sugar or corn syrup or from potentially harmful fake sweeteners like aspartame or saccharin to nutrient-dense Blackstrap Molasses is one simple way that eating healthy can sweeten your life.

Blackstrap Molasses is very dark in color, having a black-brown hue.
The truth behind the phrase "slow as molasses" becomes apparent when you reflect on molasses's thick, viscous, syrupy texture. Featuring a robust bittersweet flavor, Blackstrap Molasses helps create the distinctive taste of dishes such as baked beans and gingerbread.
Blackstrap Molasses is just one type of molasses, the dark liquid that is the by-product of the process of refining sugar cane into table sugar.
Blackstrap Molasses is made from the third boiling of the sugar syrup and is therefore the concentrated byproduct left over after the sugar's sucrose has been crystallized.
History of Blackstrap Molasses:
Molasses has been imported into the United States from the Caribbean Islands since the time of the early colonists.
In fact, it was the most popular sweetener used until the late 19th century since it was much more affordable than refined sugar, which was very expensive at that time.
In some respects, molasses has had a rather sticky history with at least two important historical events centering around this sweet food product.
The first is the Molasses Act of 1733, a tariff passed by England to try to discourage the colonists from trading with areas of the West Indies that were not under British rule. This legislation is thought to be one of the events that catalyzed pre-revolutionary colonial dissent and unrest. It is not often that a fateful tragedy occurs that centers around a food, but unfortunately, in 1919, one such event did occur.
The event is referred to as the Great Molasses Flood and occurred when a molasses storage tank holding over two million gallons of molasses broke, and its sticky content came pouring throughout the city streets of Boston, MASS; traveling as fast as 35 miles per hour and creating a thirty foot tidal wave of sweetener.
Unfortunately, this was not a sweet matter as twenty-one people died and significant amounts of property was destroyed. Blackstrap Molasses gained in popularity in the mid-20th century with the advent of the health food movement.
Today, the largest producers of molasses are India, Brazil, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and the United States. Blackstrap Molasses should be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator or a cool, dry place.
Unopened containers should keep for about one year, while opened containers should keep for about six months.
How to Enjoy:
A Few Quick Serving Ideas: Adding Blackstrap Molasses to baked beans will give them that traditionally robust flavor.
Blackstrap Molasses imparts a wonderfully distinctive flavor to cookies and gingerbread cakes.
Basting chicken or turkey with Blackstrap Molasses will give it both a rich color and rich taste.
