Default Food grade blackstrap molasses in bulk?



Advertise Here

Anybody know a good on line source for food grade molasses in bulk? Great deals out there if you're a horse, but I'm looking for human eating grade molasses.

E2A: The best price I have found is Amazon at 22 cents an ounce, delivered, via Subscribe and Save.

I think restaurant suppliers are probably going to be the best source. They'll probably have to special order it as few restaurants use it. But they can get it, and their prices are most likely going to be better.

Being in Iowa, you might be better finding a local source of boiled down sorghum sweezings ..... it's the midwest version of sweet crop

Great on pancakes!

You can also make a very fine rum with it if you process it properly through the right apparatus.

I'm assuming it stores well too, given the amount of sugar content? Any idea on the storage length?

That's an issue, actually. Blackstrap molasses is the end product of a bunch of sugar squeezings and really has not much sugar in it, hence the very strong flavor. Usually it's sulphured as a preservative. I don't mind that, although some people freak at the idea of sulphured molasses. So far, many of the bulk suppliers sell it unsulphured and state that it needs to be refrigerated, and that's not going to work for me.

At this point I'm back to buying quart jars of it on Amazon unless I can make a trip to the Restaurant Depot in the Twin Cities sometime.

But is that feed grade? Or food grade?
