According to Young Mother Hubbard:
Just one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses provides (on average) the following nutrients: iron (20% RDA), manganese (21%), copper (21%), calcium (18%), potassium (15%), magnesium (11%), vitamin B6 (7%) and selenium (5%). This is good for anyone and particularly good for growing children, pregnant and nursing women.
