If you want to know where to buy the best molasses for use in home remedies, our readers can offer you tips on good deals, trustworthy brands, and where to find the right stuff. Blackstrap molasses is the specific formulation of molasses you should be looking for in terms of medicinal use. It is the triple-condensed version of molasses and thus contains more of various minerals by volume to improve the positive impact molasses can have on your health. Blackstrap molasses offers substantial amounts of the dietary minerals iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium, and selenium.
Our readers prefer several brands of blackstrap molasses. The one point of difference you will have to discover for yourself is whether to choose sulfured or unsulfured molasses. Added sulfur reduces the darkness of the molasses, and some health benefits can be derived from sulfur (antifungal, joint health, etc.). However, it can create allergenic sulfites. Make your own choice about sulfur in blackstrap molasses based on your own medical history and needs.

04/30/2008: Gee from Brisbane, Australia: "For those in Australia that are looking for it, try Pure Label Molasses, bought in one of those oversized supermarket corporations. Packed for Conga foods. Says it does not have any sulphate which is in everything. They say on the label that it is Black Strap Molasses. The only ingredient on the bottle is Molasses. I thought it was an American thing, but it seems its universal. Bought a 550 gram jar for a few dollars."
04/18/2008: Lana from Craigieburn, Australia: "Hi, I've been reading all the feedback regarding blackstrap molasses and all the benefits it has after consuming everyday. It got me really excited so the minute i got the chance i went out to buy some but was really disappointed when i could not find it. I've tried the health food store and the supermarket but they did not have any, they didn't even know what i was talking about. So my question is..Does anyone know where i can find blackstrap molasses in Australia or even if it is called balckstrap molasses maybe it is called something else here???"Replies
[YEA] 05/26/2008: Robin from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia replies: "Lana from Cragieburn, Australia- You can find molasses, really you can! Go to Woolworths- in the section where you can buy honey/spreads/jams. Look for Pure Label, but there could be another brand as well. If you do not find it, go to the health food section of Woolworths or even Coles and look for it there. I buy my molasses at either shop and have had not problem. As a last resort, ask the manager at either shop if they can get it in for you- usually they are very helpful.
06/04/2012: Nicole from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Hey Lana, I couldn't find it at woolworths but I did fnd one called Blue Label BSM and I found it at Go Vita which is like a health food store. Good luck with it and I hope it works for you."

05/09/2007: Katya from Paris, France: "]amazing! where can i buy blackstrap mollasses ? does anybody know the name of it in french?"Replies
[YEA] Francoise replies: "OK. If I am not mistaken blackstrap molasse is a black kind of sugar made from sugar cane or beet, right? It has a strong smell and is very dark, almost black which is why it is called blackstrap molasse. If this is what you're talking about it is called "melasse noire" and can probably be found in a "epicerie Antillaise" (grocery store from Guadeloupe/Martinique) or any store that sells exotic products."

If you are in Mumbai it will be hard to find Black Strap Mollasses. If you can visit any Sugarcane crusher or small farmers in Rural areas where they crush sugarcane to make jaggary you can easily get it. It's last residue of the process of making jaggery. Hope it helps.
