Additional Information

Blackstrap molasses is a thick, dark syrup left after the extraction of sugar from sugar cane. The roots of the sugar cane run a long way into the soil, and have received a broad spectrum of minerals and trace elements. Molasses has a bitter-sweet flavour, and is a popular health food due to its high levels of iron, manganese, copper, potassium and magnesium.

Melrose Organic Molasses is made in the traditional way-with one important difference. The sugar cane and all the processing of the molasses are certified organic. This guarantees a fresh, delicious taste without any harmful additives, pesticides or herbicides. It is packed in glass bottles at Melrose's own GMP certified manufacturing plant in Australia.

Melrose Organic Molasses is black strap molasses, which means it is the most concentrated form of molasses made from the final boiling of the sugar cane extract, so it's the most concentrated form of molasses. It's also unsulphured, which means that no allergenic chemicals have been used in processing.

The most important benefit of molasses is its high mineral content. Most sweeteners are white because they've been stripped of all their natural goodness. Melrose Organic Molasses is dark in colour because it contains the concentrated goodness of the earth in which the sugar cane is grown. One tablespoon of Melrose Organic Molasses contains 20% of the daily recommended daily intake for calcium, 22.5% of the daily recommended daily intake for magnesium and almost 40% of the recommended daily intake for iron.

An easy way to improve your diet is to replace refined sugars with molasses. Molasses can be used in baking, as a delicious topping or as a recipe ingredient. It gives its rich taste to baked beans, Melrose Organic Worcestershire Sauce and gingerbread biscuits, and is also eaten straight off the spoon or dissolved in little hot water.
