Is this ok to use? All I know is if you use it you're suppose to get the unsulphured kind. Does anybody know if Brer Rabbit molasses is a form of black strap molasses. It doesn't say black strap anywhere on it, just mild flavored molasses.

I use Plantation it says blackstrap on the label. I only use it during that "special" time each month or when I feel I need an iron boost, it's also high in calcium which is why I use it once a month, calcium is a good preventative for cramps.

If it does not say blackstrap molasses on the label, it isn't. Blackstrap is the kind you want, because it is the kind that has all the minerals.
Molasses is not a raw food, as it is a by-product of the sugar making process, wherein sugarcane is boiled down. It is up to the individual, however, whether to eat it or not. Myself, I like to have it sometimes. It adds a nice flavor to certain things, and sometimes I like to just eat a spoonful. It tastes good, and I like the fact that it is full of important minerals.
If you haven't ever tried blackstrap molasses, though, be warned: it has a very STRONG taste! Not unpleasant, just strong. It can sometimes be an aquired taste, although I loved it the first time I tried it.

Hello -- You guys got me keenly interested in unsulphured blackstrap molasses. Despite the fact that blackstrap molasses is not raw, it contains lots of valuable vitamins and minerals, particularly calcium and iron. Maybe I read the information incorrectly, but comparing nutritional make up of organic and conventional blackstrap molasses shows that the latter (conventional) has more calcium per tablespoon. What gives? I tried looking for information via Google, but to no avail. I would think that anything that is organic has more nutritional value compared to conventional products. Any information to shed light on nutrition of blackstrap molasses would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
