What is Blackstrap Molasses?
It is the nutrient-rich jaggery syrup that is left after most of the sugar has been extracted from it three times in a row.
In other words, it is 'jaggery MINUS white sugar'.
Because of this, it has all the good nutrients of jaggery without the harmful white sugar!
You don't see it often in shops near you because it is fermented to make alcohol in sugar factories because it is nutrient rich.
