16) Blackstrap Molasses
Blackstrap molasses is a liquid removed from sugar cane and sugar beet juice. These are both used as raw materials to produce sugar. But unlike refined sugar, it is very rich in minerals. The taste is not as sweet as sugar, and it looks brown or black, but the nutritional benefits are worth it.
People have different tastes, and you may like it or not. We are usually very accustomed to sugar, and making variations can be difficult. But it works perfectly if you dissolve molasses in hot water and add it to milk, soy milk, coffee, and other foods that need some sweetening. Moreover, you’ll be getting some extra nutrients in the process. Only one tablespoon can give you up to 100 mg of calcium. That’s a lot considering the rest of the numbers in this article.
