Molasses is a by-product of white crystaline sugar production from sugar beets or sugar cane. Brown sugar is brown because it is un-refined and when it is refined you get white crysaline suger and molasses. Blackstrap is really from the 3rd boiling or refineing stage. It's got that bitter sweet taste. I think "beer" has been made from every fermentable known to man, including low alcohol fermented milk.
Out west, we use black strap in big 100 pound "licking blocks" as an high energy source in the winter for range cattle
