Thanks for posting the information about Molasses Cures.
1st, an alert: "Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Molasses," used in the 1/31/09 post comparing it to Blackstrap Molasses, is actually blackstrap! It doesn't say that on the front label, but on the side, in small print, it says "Ingredients: Blackstrap Molasses." That's why it's composition is so similar to the Blackstrap shown.
By comparison, the composition of Grandma's Molasses given in an earlier post makes a good example of regular molasses, a 1st boiling.
At the suggestion of an acupuncturist, I've been taking a tablespoon each day for leg cramps. I'd tried taking extra calcium and magnesium, but was still having leg cramps. He said, perhaps I needed more iron. The beauty of the blackstrap is it has all three plus potassium. Thank you for providing this website :-)
