Crosby’s blackstrap molasses is an easy source of many important nutrients and is a staple in health food stores. Blackstrap molasses is the highly-concentrated, final by-product of the refined sugar manufacturing process. As the sugar crystallizes, the residual cane juice thickens into a dark mass and is separated out through a centrifuge. The resulting molasses is very dark with a robust, somewhat bitter flavour. It is a pure product and contains no added sulphates or sulphites. Blackstrap molasses is considered one of the healthiest foods in the world because it contains so many nutrients.

Blackstrap molasses is often used as a natural colouring agent in foods (in place of artificial caramel colour). Some prefer the more robust flavour of blackstrap molasses when preparing foods like baked beans or gingerbread.
