Where to Buy Blackstrap Molasses

| Modified on Jan 04, 2023
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.

Hi, I'm in Accra. I purchased my black strap molasses at Dansoman. Look out for the shell filling station after the Dansoman Police station, there is a health shop just in front of the fuel station that sells some. it cost Ghc 12.

You can also try the Relish health shop at Osu, Accra inside Akai House. Ask for where the old American Embassy used to be.

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.

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???

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.
Cheers, Robin

Hi Fee,

Could you please tell me where you were able to purchase Black Strap Molasses (unsulphured I hope) in Melbourne?

In Melbourne you can buy Melrose brand Organic blackstrap molasses which is unsulphured. They are in short supply at the moment but ask at your local health food store.

I bought mine recently both at Woolworths & local Health Food shop (15/08/2015). Woolworths has the Capilano Brand Pure & Natural, on the same shelf as Treacle next to the baking items.

Health food store you can buy The Melrose Brand (Organic) in jar or store brand in 1kg tub.

It is very popular may be that's why you have trouble finding it, when you do buy a few jars It keeps very well in the pantry.

I drink 2/3 tablespoon a day in either tea, coffee or just water (hot water in winter, iced water in summer).

I grew up on the stuff and never new the health benefit of it until 2 months ago while watching a gardening show on TV.

As a child I can not remember seeing a doctor. I hate medicine of any sort, I am now 70 years the only medicine I take is cardiprin to thin the blood. Thanks to good old fashion remedies, thanks mum.

Re: Blackstrap molasses for gray hair. I don't know what the problem outside of Canada is in obtaining inexpensive blackstrap molasses. In British Columbia, a one pint carton at Real Canadian Superstore is $2.29.

For those of you looking for molasses in France:

- Organic molasses is available from the Naturalia chain where it is sold as mélasse noire.

- Black treacle (the British name for molasses) can be found at Galéries Lafayette Gourmet.

]amazing! where can i buy blackstrap mollasses ? does anybody know the name of it in french?

Replied by Francoise

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.

I just moved here (Germany) and can't find blackstrap molasses. Does anyone have any idea where I might find some? Thanks!!


Posted by Awo (Ghana) on 03/09/2015

Thank you all for posting your experiences on this site. I am very happy I found this site as well.

I had surgery on 2008 to remove multiple fibroids but it came back so fast and this time, I want to avoid surgery. I am currently taking BSM and in less than 2 weeks, I have put on so much weight around my mid section. I intended to stop it then I read on site that the 100g per serving which is the one I am taking is overly processed so I will stop it immediately and look for the 600g per serving. I don't know where to find this in ghana but I will try very hard to get one. I am also confused as to whether I should get BST or ordinary molasses. please help me out. in any case, I will try the 600g per serving and post my experience as well. thank you so much and God bless you.
