How Much Copper Content in Blackstrap Molasses?

Posted by Dr. Z (Anonymous) on 02/15/2013

I've been reading a lot about Blackstrap Molasses on the earth clinic website. And I hear about how it is rich in Copper, Manganese and Iron in addition to Vitamin B. However so far all the brands of blackstrap molasses (BSM) that I've researched do not list copper in their nutrition label. And so far I've looked at Wholesome organic BSM, Plantation, House of Herbs, Brer Rabbit and the list goes on.

Can you please provide some information as to which brand contains at least the copper? And I believe copper is the ingredient that is helpful for hair. Thanks.

It's been several years since I was in Bangkok, but they used to have a grocery store downtown that catered to farongs. Try them.

Most sellers of BSM (blackstrap molasses) don't do sufficient analysis of copper in their BSM, so we don't know. But we can take amino copper chelate or chlorophyll - which is basically sodium copper chlorophyllin - together with our blackstrap molasses to ensure the copper.

Hi Ted -I've moved to early retirement. As you live in Thailand, where can I buy blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar in Bangkok? Please provide advisement, I'm desperate for help.
