molasses, blackstrap molasses, and nutrition[edit]

It is true that many surprising health claims have been made for molasses and blackstrap molasses.

It is well documented that--in comparison to other refined sugar products--molasses and blackstrap molasses are high in nutrients, ranging from iron and calcium to B complex vitamins. These are still refined sugar products, and probably little if at all healthier than table sugar or high fructose corn syrup, and putting molasses in your coffee instead of sugar is not going to cure cancer or make you immortal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.61.164.169 (talk) 05:23, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
