Oh please come back and let us know how that mixture tastes. Everytime I put blackstrap in something it overpowers it; I have yet to acquire a taste for it. That mixture doesn't sound too bad though.


Quoted from dancer
Hello everyone!
About blackstrap molasses:
I've just recived 1 bottle of PURE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES 100% NATURAL ...
It's VERY DARK and its smell is very intense!
The kind man who gave it to me, told me to use 2-4 tablespoon  daily in 1 liter of water ( + 1/2 lemon, if I want)...as a powerful and natural integration of IRON, CALCIUM, POTASSIUM & MAGNESIUM...

I know that blackstrap molasses is beneficial x type A ( and so I'll give 1/2 bottle to my dear Dad, the only A in the family! He has hypertension and I told him to eat BTD A! I hope he'll follow my advise...! )
But CAN I USE THIS GENUINE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES x MYSELF, TYPE 0 -?
Ciao Ciao!

Hi all,

The first bottle of blackstrap molasses I bought was from Tree of Life.  It was thick once it was refrigerated and had a strong taste but a little sweet.  As I said earlier it reminded me of black licorice which is an OK taste for me.  I read that someone uses Barbados unsulfurered and I thought I'd try that.  It truly pours "as slow as ....." and has a heavier taste.  I would have thought all molasses was more or less created equal.  But supposedly this has a higher content of iron and I am feeling more strength throughout the day when I take it on a regular basis.

Right now I feel the benefits outweigh anything else and I just have it before breakfast.

Hi Lola,

To metabolize iron it is critical to have some acid, so dancer's idea of lemon + molasses is very good ... especially for A's ... who have a natural low-acidity.

And it's yummy!!! I finally tried it, made it with 6 oz hot water, 1.5T blackstrap and about a T of lemon (a squirt from my bottle-o-lemon) and stirred. It tastes like tea, yummy!!!

blackstrap molasses is also very good with ginger, I always use it for ginger snaps and I just polished off half a pan of gingerbread, yum!

Ooookeeedokeee, here's a loaded question. If blackstrap molasses is loaded w/ iron,calcium, potassium and magnesium, would I be correct in assuming the iron is organic iron (+2)?  If anyone knows, please share, as my mom's iron count is high, but the rest are low. However, we suspect her iron count is so high from having used an iron skillet (inorganic iron   +3) all her life. Having said that, if the b/s molasses IS organic iron, would she be safe to use the molasses even tho her iron count is high right now? Also she is diabetic, so I know if she could use it, she would have to be extra careful.

hadoken , you say you have Soya Milk and a tablespoon of blkstrap once a week....
THAT sounds really yummy!!!!!!!!  Sorry Isa.

Alia Vo, you said unsulfered or blackstrap molasses is made from the last pressing of the sugarcane. I read somewhere recently that the last pressing is called sorghum molasses which I understand is an avoid for O's. ???????????  I'm SO confused and I need not to be because I absolutely love molasses.  All I have to do is look at the bottle and my mouth waters. Open it up and take a whiff,    just heaven!!!

.......and sugarcane has nothing to do with sorghum, to my understanding. )

so, this means sorghum molasses is made from a grain, and all the other molasses' are made from sugarcane?

I started eating dried unsulphured apricots a few months ago and last time I had my iron tested it had gone up from about 12 to 29!! I had not really been taking iron supplements, just the apricots. I don't know if they're ok for other Blood Types but I eat them because I find them yummy!

I have some blackstrap molasses (altho all this talk of different types is very confusing!) and last night I added some to my spelt bread mixture - I use honey instead of sugar already - not sure if it's made a difference yet.

I had never heard of sorghum molasses before.......
the blackstrap molasses mentioned, are from sugarcane, exclusively.

I made a drink that I call Molassi today, and find it nice, especially as I can't use dairy and am going light on soy milk for a while.
It's made with yoghurt plus a teaspoon of molasses and a spoonful of tinned apricots (or any other appropriate fruit), all whipped up in a blender.

To CrystalIda,
I have tried the molasses in water with lemon (I use minute maid lemonade w/cherry) and it is very good. I does taste like an herb tea. Thanks for the suggestion.

Jenny,

Is your molassi drink just yogurt, fruit and molasses?

And then you blend it?

You want to look for 'unsulphered' blackstrap molasses on the label.  Many commercial brands are a by-product of sugarcane processing mixed with chemicals, whereas, unsulphered molasses is made from the last pressing of the sugarcane; thus, it's not refined.  Look carefully at the bottle, it will state if it is 100% unsulphered blackstrap molasses.  Wholesome Sweeteners is a quality brand.  

Sorghum molasses is from the grain sorghum--this has no relationship to blackstrap molasses.

thanks for the info Alia.  
So, there IS such a thing as sorghum molasses????  This is what I've always heard it called. Guess it was just a "family" thing.

This post has been going around for quite some time, now.  Every time I see it in the list, I want to go into the kitchen, pour myself a tablespoonful and drink it down.  I love blackstrap molasses!  I was disappointed to find that it is only a neutral for me.  Well, enough said.  I'm heading into the kitchen!

Has molasses changed values?  I thought for SURE it was an avoid for type O's...since it does have sugar, albeit a natural one, is it inflamitory?
