"Molasses is super-duper healthy. It is a very concentrated by product of sugar cane refining, which also means the nutrients are very concentrated. A tablespoon of molasses (~20 grams) contains around 20% of your recommended intake for iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium, at only ~45 calories.
It also contains plenty vitamin B6. That is pretty darn impressive!
Now a sidenote: make sure you buy unsulphered molasses. Sulphers have proven to be a common allergenic for a lot people, and even if you’re not allergic it’s still a harmful substance (a preservative).
For me it took some time to get used to the bittersweet taste but I highly recommend you give molasses a try! Molasses is avilable at health food stores. Here are some cool molasses recipes for you:
"Molasses is a sweetener. It is actually the by-product of the refining of cane sugar (table sugar). What makes regular, white sugar so unhealthy (among other things), is that it is stripped of it’s nutrients. Well, this stripping process results in the ‘waste’ product molasses, and someone was once smart enough to come up with actually using that byproduct. Molasses was born (1)."
