Molasses is a wholesome and natural sweetener
I met a woman the other day who eats a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses every morning to keep her hair from going grey. She said it’s the copper content in blackstrap molasses that does the trick.
I don’t know the connection between copper and hair colour but I do know the nutritional benefits of our molasses products.
Fancy molasses nutritional profile:
Crosby’s fancy molasses contains residual nutrients so you get the delicious with the nutritious.
The highest grade of molasses available, fancy molasses is the pure juice of the sugar cane, condensed, inverted and purified. It is 100% natural and contains no additives or preservatives. It is a bit lighter in colour than the other molasses products, and the flavour is tangy sweet. All the recipes on this website are made with Fancy Molasses
Blackstrap molasses nutritional profile:
Crosby’s blackstrap molasses is an easy source of many important nutrients and is a staple in health food stores.
Blackstrap molasses is the highly-concentrated, final by-product of the refined sugar manufacturing process. As the sugar crystallizes, the residual cane juice thickens into a dark mass and is separated out through a centrifuge. The resulting molasses is very dark with a robust, somewhat bitter flavour. Like the fancy molasses, it is a pure product and contains no added sulphates or sulphites. Blackstrap molasses is considered one of the healthiest foods in the world because it contains so many nutrients.
Cooking molasses nutritional profile:
Cooking molasses is a blend of blackstrap and fancy molasses. It is thicker and darker than fancy molasses — less sweet, with a more “full-flavoured” taste.
