Blackstrap molasses isn't the stuff you want to use for your cookies, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consume it. The biggest difference between this molasses and the regular molasses you buy at the store is its bitter taste. There are also a lot more nutrients in blackstrap molasses. Not only does it have some of the vitamins and minerals you need in your daily diet, but it also offers some other really fantastic health benefits too.
Beyond its many different health benefits, blackstrap molasses is simply a good source of many of the nutrients you need. In one tablespoon, you'll get a gram of protein, plus some iron, manganese, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, and copper. There is also no fat in blackstrap molasses so it won't contribute to a high-fat diet. It does, however, have a decent bit (12g) of sugar in a tablespoon.
