04/26/2009: Wasiya from Bangalore, Karnataka India replies: "i am also from bangalore i am trying to find bsm if u have found where to buy bsm pls help"
04/11/2007: Vineet from Nasik, India: "Hi, can you advise from where can i purchase blackstrp molasses in India?"
EC: Our dear friend from Calcutta tells us that molasses can be found in all grocery stores... It is called Gur. You can also buy Jaggery in Calcutta, which is date syrup. Gur is used to heal lung damage in Ayurvedic medicine, apparently.
03/28/2008: Vineet from Wanchai, Hongkong replies: "Hi, as mentioned that Blackstrap molasses is available as GUR in India, but I don't thing that's true. Because GUR is nothing but Jaggery. And I thing Jaggery is not BlackStrapMolasses. Pls correct me if I am wrong.... So the hunt for BSM continues in India... Any luck ?"
03/29/2008: RD from Boston, MA replies: "Gur can be made from date sap or from cane sap. Gur is simply an edible form of fruit sap. Molasses in Calcutta would be cane sugar sap (or akhi gur, in the local Bengali language). I am not sure which type of molasses you want, so I can't help you further than that!"
[YEA] 06/24/2008: TN from UK replies: "In India and most countries that have sugar cane plantations just visit a farm and ask them for the molasses. Molasses are not strictly gur but it is the residue produced while making it .Ask the farmers to save you some, they could bottle it and for them it would be an extra source of income. You could also take it piping hot when it is being made at the farms."
06/30/2009: Monsoon from Pune, India replies: "Hi,
Gur is jaggery and not molasses. Molasses is not understood by farmers here in India. Akha Gur is also jaggery, only in a different form. Molasses can be made only after the jaggery part is done from the sugarcane.
If anyone does get hold of Molasses here in India, do let us know"
10/08/2009: Malathi from Bangalore, Karnataka, India replies: "I verified from many sources that GUR (Jaggery) and BSM are not the same.
Black Strap molasses is available in India!!! I live in Bangalore. Like many of you, I have been desperately searching for BSM in India. I spent nearly 2 months in searching for BSM in every Health store, Organic food shop, medical shop, etc that I know. Finally, I got the contact details of one company, ( I believe this is the one and only company in India) which imports Organic Unsuphured BSM from Australia and sells it in India. The cost of 600 ml is Rs 700. Since they sell only in Delhi, I had to send the DD along with the courier charges to get the BSM. I know it is expensive but I didn't have any other choice. The name of the company is GLOBAL HEALTH SUPPLIES(Delhi). website www.globalhealthsupplies.net. Contact # is 919810590525 or 919911126748.
Would be very happy if anybody tells me of any other company which is manufacturing/selling unsulphured BSM in India.
Now I am searching for Brewers Yeast which has Copper in it in India !!! Any help?"
01/26/2010: Vidya from Tamilnadu, Tamilnadu replies: "go to a local sugarcane factory and ask for molasses. this blackstrap molasses is also used in alcohol preparation, so it is usually not given unless the owner feels comfortable giving you bsm for your health benefits. good luck.
bsm is needed while preparing sesame oil.. so you can also buy bsm in the oil mill.."
01/29/2010: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Vidya...When you purchase 'Blackstrap' molasses, ask questions about how they make it.
Proper Blackstrap Molasses and ordinary Molasses are not the same. Blackstrap Molasses is the sticky residue left after the third boiling of the sugar cane or molasses.
Ordinary Molasses is only the first or second boiling of the sugar cane, and therefore contains much more sugar and less concentrated minerals than Blackstrap. Ordinary molasses therefore does not have the health benefits of Blackstrap Molasses.
Therefore, ensure that what you purchase is proper Blackstrap Molasses."

[YEA] 07/13/2009: Sasha from Savanna-la-mar, Jamaica: "Hi, I noticed that most people on this site do not know where to get molasses. Well molasses is found mostly in countries that grows sugar cane for sugar. Jamaica in the caribbean where i come from has molasses in wasted amounts. You could probably ask a friend/tourist or any one you know that comes to jamaica for vacation etc to get it for you. That's the best i can suggest.

Well, I managed to find make a deal myself to distribute Blackstrap Molasses. So if anyone is interested, you can find it here http://adila-mike.blogspot.com.

Adding Blackstrap Molasses to my normal Fountain of Youth potion (ACV and cayenne pepper minus baking soda) have greatly improved my skin this 3 days. I have yet to see the effect on my health."

And I can see that more organic shops are available now compare to before. In PJ alone, you can get it at Cold Storage (in One Utama shopping center) organic section, or at any of the organic shops in PJ or KL area. I would think it's the same for other states in Malaysia. If you have any problem finding it, please leave a message here, and I'll try to find a shop near your area. No promises, just try my best."

I can't find blackstrap molasses here and i need it to combat fibroid tumours and grey hair. I also have painful and heavy periods. I'm hoping that molasses can help me. will black treacle help me? please send your answer to my mailbox. i'd appreciate it."
EC: It might work. Blackstrap molasses is the third boiling of cane, black treacle is the first.
"First product of refining of molasses from beet or sugar cane extract is black treacle, slightly less bitter; will not crystallize. A 25-g portion is a source of calcium and iron; supplies 65%u2009kcal (270%u2009kJ)."
