    I first bought blackstrap molasses for the potassium content as I eat high potassium foods instead of taking supplements/drugs.
    I was somewhat disappointed that you do not list the potassium content along with the sodium content. I bought a quart of your golden barrel blackstrap molasses, but will look for one that does list the potassium in the future.

      Hi Betty, thanks for the review. We actually do list Potassium and Sodium on our nutritional panel of each label. You can see it if you click on the image above of the nutritional information. Hopefully, you will reconsider the 2 star rating that you left.

    When my husband broke his leg the Dr, suggested he drink a glass of milk daily with a generous amount of blackstrap molasses mixed in. True story!

    My wife uses Blackstrap molasses for years, baking cookies cakes adding to tea coffee. We order by the case and give to family & friends. Great product.

    I purchased 4 gallons of Blackstrap molasses last year on thru the website and recently another gallon at the company store, I love this product. I use it out of the bottle as a daily health supplement (tastes great) and also as part of a organic fertilizer mix for my fruit and vegetable crops. I am not sure if I or my crops are more heather.

    The best product for the money, even with paying for shipping. I love the flavor. I add the molasses to hot water each morning, then squirt in some lime juice. Great way to get extra calcium in my diet.

    I love the blackstrap molasses I use it for baking and it makes my baked goods taste better. It is much better than the stuff you buy off the shelf.

    I started buying the small jar. Hubby loved it so much we wound up buying the big gallon jug! I am so excited! I recently found a very old recipe from when I was a child for a molasses candy that I just loved. I haven’t had it since I was a kid but if all goes well it may become Christmas gifts. Sis did the Butterscotch candy. But for me it had to be the molasses candy. A+ molasses! The best!

    I use this for extra calcium. The jar I had contained 20% calcium. I just reordered and my jars say 12% calcium. Why the difference?? I do love your product!!!!!!

      Hi, due to upcoming FDA required label changes for nutritional panels, we recently updated our labels. Along with those updates were come recalculations based on the USDA recommend averages for calcium and other minerals for blackstrap molasses. It is still the same molasses as always just with an updated nutritional panel.

    Just purchased a pint of your Blackstrap Molasses for the first time .why are they so thin ? the texture is that like pancake syrup I do not like watery molasses please explain. What I have been buying has the texture of cane syrup why the bitter taste. thanks

      Hi Frank,
      Molasses should be quite consistent in how thick it is since it is all made to the same Brix of 79-80. If your’s is exceptionally thin, then either it is being stored in rather a warm area or there could be something wrong with the batch that you received. As far as bitterness, blackstrap molasses naturally has a very strong flavor due to the fact that much of the sugar has been removed. The result is a more dense molasses with strong flavor and higher mineral content. It sounds like what you are used to is more like our Supreme Baking Molasses which has much sweeter and pleasant taste.

    Heard it for the first time and extremely interested in purchasing. However, sounds ridiculous to pay Ground (UPS) shipping : $22.35 for an $8 item. I wish the shipping charges were reasonable for first time customer.

      Hi Luz,
      Our molasses is very shelf stable and can be stored in a regular cupboard or pantry. Refrigeration is nor required.
