BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES (UNSULPHURED & ORGANIC)
Product of Paraguay
Blackstrap molasses is the more concentrated by-product, obtained from the 3rd boiling of the sugarcane syrup, after the sucrose in the sugar gets crystallized. It has been used since the 19th century as a popular and affordable sweetener. The use of blackstrap molasses was popularized during the health food movement in the mid-20th century.
Blackstrap molasses is a healthy sweetener, full of nutritional value, unlike refined white sugar or artificial sweeteners like saccharine. Just two teaspoons contain over 10% of the US Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of calcium, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron, and potassium, B vitamins and other valuable minerals and nutrients.
Calcium: Calcium is one of the important minerals required by our body. It is needed for forming and maintaining strong bones and teeth. Two teaspoons of blackstrap molasses meets 11.8% of our daily need for calcium. (/br>
Magnesium: It is essential not only for bones and cell energy production, but is also needed for regulating calcium levels. It controls the flow of calcium in nerve cells. Two teaspoons of blackstrap molasses daily provides 7.3% value for magnesium.
Copper: Copper is essential for iron utilization, production of hair and skin pigments known as melanin, free radical elimination, development of bone tissue, controlling good and bad cholesterol and other physiolOrganicical processes in the body. Your breakfast cereal or tea, sweetened with two teaspoonful of blackstrap molasses syrup will provide 14.0% of the daily recommended value for copper.
Manganese: Manganese protects the body against damage from free radicals. It helps in the production of protein and carbohydrates and is important for a healthy nervous system. Just two teaspoonful of the syrup will supply 18.0% of the day's needs for manganese.
Iron: Two teaspoons of this syrup will supply you 13.3% of the daily recommended value for iron, replenishing your iron stores. Iron is essential for energy production and metabolism. Blackstrap molasses provides more iron and less calories and is especially useful for growing children and lactating women, as they are more prone to iron deficiency.
Potassium: It is important for the smooth functioning of the muscle and the nervous system. It helps to maintain the body's electrolyte and pH balance. Two teaspoonful daily will provide you with 9.7% recommended value of potassium.
Nature's Glory Black strap Molasses are made from organically grown sugar cane. Roots of the sugar cane take 12 to 15 months to mature and can grow to 3 meters deep, drawing from the soil a wide variety of minerals not normally found in top soil. The cane is pressed to extract the juice and sugar is removed leaving dark syrup.
