What is the nutritional value of blackstrap molasses?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

Blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of iron. It is also a very good source of vitamin B6 as well as many minerals, including calcium, copper, manganese, potassium, and magnesium. In addition, it is a good source of selenium and pantothenic acid. A 3.5 oz. (100 g, or five tablespoons) serving of blackstrap molasses provides 235 calories, primarily from the 61 g of carbohydrate. There is no fat or protein in molasses.
