A Better Sweetener

I found this piece on “Zen to Life” blog.  Blackstrap molasses is a great addition to our diet. Compared to  sugar or artificial sweeteners, molasses (non-sulfuric and organic) is a smart, nutrient-dense alternative.  There are several grades of molasses, which is made by boiling sugar cane one to three times.  What separates bootstrap molasses from mild or first molasses and second molasses?  Bootstrap is the third boiling, which removes most of the original sucrose, so there is a smaller amount of sugars remaining.  http://zentofitness.com/the-benefits-of-blackstrap-molasses/
