    Hi, could you tell me if your molasses has had sulfer of any kind. Like to try it in the garden. Thanks

    1. Hi Cecil, our molasses is unsulfured, although our blackstrap does contain some naturally occurring sulfurs. Hope this helps!

    1. alfred says:

      and does fancy molasses have the same nutritional content as black strap

    2. Lynn Purdy says:

      Alfred, Fancy Molasses is a brand all of its own. It is not mixed with blackstrap. Our Cooking Molasses is 30% Fancy and 70% Blackstrap. Please see the information on our website that explains all of this much better, http://www.crosbys.com/products/molasses-products/#!products. Happy Holidays.
