Blackstrap Molasses as a Sugar Substitute

Even though blackstrap molasses is a byproduct of sugar cane, it offers much healthier perks. With iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6, blackstrap molasses can stand in as a natural sugar substitute. And with a low glycemic index, it can help keep your blood sugar levels under control.*

Blackstrap molasses has a deep flavor that is a bit smoky and bitter. Try cooking with it in stews and roasts. Because of its nutritional benefits, you might try adding a teaspoon to your coffee or tea.
