More about Meridian Organic Fairtrade Blackstrap Molasses

Meridian Blackstrap Molasses is extracted during the process of cane sugar production, in which all the beneficial nutrients of the sugar cane are concentrated into the molasses. It is the product of the 'third boil' of the sugar juices. Blackstrap molasses should not be confused with standard molasses which is not so rich in minerals. Blackstrap molasses is particularly rich in calcium and can be an excellent source of calcium for those who restrict their dairy intake.

Serving Suggestion

Blackstrap Molasses is rich in minerals and can be eaten by the spoon, diluted in hot water and taken as a drink or used in cooking. Include in savoury recipes as a marinade or to enhance stews, roasts and casseroles. In baking it can replace some or all of the sugar content and is particularly good in dark, rich cakes.

Recipes

Soy free soya sauce! - Thu 3rd Nov 2011

This is really easy to make, all you need is 8 fl oz mollasses, 3 fl oz balsamic vinegar and some sugar to taste. Mix everything together well and hey presto, soy-flavoured sauce. It keeps well in an airtight tub in the fridge too

This molasses is a really yummy addition to home-made flapjacks instead of syrup - much more nutritious too!

Really tasty - Wed 25th Jan 2017

This is really tasty. Sweet, rich and warm. I'm enjoying it stirred into heated nut milk today, with a good pinch of mixed spices. It also makes a lovely sweetener for hot cocoa.

My choices for organic molasses is limited but I have no complaints with this product. I eat it purely for the minerals (iron) but the taste is delicious, and in cooking it makes really good toffees.

Delicious sweetener - Thu 18th Feb 2016

It looks a bit menacing and tarry, but it's sweet and delicious. The same stuff that gives proper brown sugar its rich, sweet smell and taste. Great in breads and biscuits, especially with spices and pumpkin. Also nice added to oatmeal with ground ginger. Even just a tablespoon is packed with most of your RDA of calcium and iron, not to mention a bunch of other stuff, so it's a worthwhile addition to your daily diet.

This is the best flavour and texture of molasses for me.

First time trying blackstrap molasses - Sun 16th Nov 2014

I don't particularly have a sweet tooth (which I'm very grateful for!) but after reading about the health benefits of blackstrap molasses I've decided to give this one a go. I've even heard of dog treat recipes using blackstrap molasses as in moderate amounts the minerals can benefit canines too. Meridian is a brand that I trust - high quality and great taste organic foods!

- Thu 15th Sep 2011

Very good strong taste that may be hard to use in baking at first, as it doesn't sweeten as much as sugar, but has a much stronger taste.

- Tue 22nd Mar 2011

Tastes great in a fruit cake!

Low Carb Sugar / Sweetener - Mon 11th Oct 2010

I use this product it's valuable to those of you who wish to reduce the amount of refined sugar in your diet. Be careful when using in recipes for the first time because it cam be overpowering if not used correctly. Try using it with recipes that ask for this product until you have got used to the taste. Good for you Low carber's/ Gi'ers.

Tips

Mix a desert spoonful of this with a glass of pressed red grape juice, it helps to re-mineralize the body, it really works and doesn't cost a fortune.
