  • Capsule form of Blackstrap Molasses

  • With 29 mg of elemental iron

  • Replaces our classic tablet form

Since the late 1960s and early 1970s, Blackstrap Molasses has been a popular product, used by many as a source of iron. Back then, we developed a fortified, tablet version supplying a specific amount of elemental iron (levels in pure molasses can vary). Now, due to changes in manufacturing and advancements in encapsulation technologies, we're replacing this popular product with an improved formula in capsule form, which eliminates the binders and increases the stability and shelf life of the supplement. With 29 mg of elemental iron with ferrous fumarate and pure blackstrap molasses powder, it's a great way to get your supplemental iron every day.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Blackstrap Molasses with Iron is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great iron that doesn't upset my stomach! I am vegetarian [almost entirely vegan] and need iron, but most chemical varieties make me nauseous. This one does the trick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff What I notice most when taking Iron is an increased connection between breathing and muscular power that makes me feel more energized and capable of performing work (lifitng weights, taking care of the house, getting thru a rough day, etc.).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too big says wife The size of this looks like 1000g, so what ... only 3% of that is iron (29mg). - Rice flour - Gelatin - Microcrystalline cellulose (plant fiber) ...these all precede the the blackstrap molasses powder in the ingredient list. My wife was having a hard enough time with swallowing the other supplements ... will be switching to something smaller to get her the 29mg she needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient I don't like the taste of Molasses so having in caps with the same effect without the taste is great. I enjoy how fast it arrives and I have been taking for years and feeling so much better and healthier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure I bought this because I read online on different sites that this product will stop the growth of grey hair thereby replacing hair with the original color. I have seen no difference in my hair and will probably not buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Really like this product. It is an alternative for me to other supplements that cause constipation and GI problems. Take this EVERY like a charm for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good been using this product for many years an does very well
Date published: 2013-12-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok- but not the best I've taken these for about 3 weeks now and although I have felt a slight pick up in energy, this type of iron is constipating to me. I will go back to using iron bisglycinate (Item# SLG228) which is a wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I have a low iron count, so along with my multi-vitamin I have to take extra iron. Since this is in powder form, it dissolves better and I don't have to take as high of mg of iron as a result. The low price is nice benefit as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IF YOU HAVE TO Ordinarily, I'm not a big fan of taking iron. However, if you need it and have to take iron, I believe this is the one to take. Right source of iron: Ferrous Fumarate. Mild and easy on the body to digest and utilize effectively. Right potency: 29 mg., neither too high nor too low. Nice with the supporting blackstrap molasses. Vegetarians often need to take some iron if their diet is not supplying enough. This is a nice product that, while everyone is different and there are no guarantees, in my opinion should be tolerated well by a vegetarian. If one is an absolutely strict, strict vegetarian, the capsule itself for this product is animal source, so you would want to pull the capsule apart and dump out the ingredients into a Tblsp, or so, of something you like. . . . perhaps applesauce or non-dairy yogurt, or ?? Of course, it's lots easier if one is a lacto, or lacto-ovo vegetarian, but then you already know that. You have no doubt read that, along with iron, taking folic acid and B-12 to team up with the iron is good. Swanson has the best, best, best B-12!!! Methylcobalamin 5 mg. sublingual tablet. Check it out on their website. And Swanson's price is a fraction of others. Personally, I take this winning team together. Whatever one's dietary preferences are, I believe this is a good (I think it is the best) and effective iron supplement that is easy on your gastrointestinal tract and easy on your wallet. I can strongly recommend Swanson's Premium Blackstrap Molasses with Iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to find a natural iron So glad to find a natural iron supplement! Others I've taken - not natural - make my nose bleed. This one does not. I take it three times a week and it does great. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Have used for several months. Works as expected. Would recommend to others

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to swallow No tummy issues with this so that's an A+ in my book.
Date published: 2012-11-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective, easy on your stomach, inexpensive My iron level was very low for several months after extensive period of perimenopausal bleeding. After I took Blackstrap Molasses for 5 weeks my iron level bounced back to normal and I was told to stop taking iron supplements. I just wanted to mention that since I am a strict vegetarian I also take Bee Pollen supplement from Swanson as a natural source of B-12 for iron absorption.
Date published: 2012-10-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great! I bought this as my ferritin level was low and had tried the bottled blackstrap molasses which is hard to find and messy. So finding it in a pill is great!
Date published: 2012-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from With 29 mg of All-natural Elemental Iron I want my iron from plants, not iron filings, liver, or any untraceable product. Swanson's has standardized this product to 29mg from molasses, which takes the guessing out of the mix. To, ensure maximum absorption, I take with some Vit. C--lime/lemon/orange juice or other high-C foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Source of Iron I actually got these supplements for a friend who needed to add iron to her diet. I've known for a long time that fresh blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of iron, but she didn't like the taste, so I got these for her to try. She's thrilled with them! After taking them for almost a month, she's decided to start getting them for herself and to take them for as long as she still needs added iron. Before now, she wasn't convinced of the superiority of food-based supplements over those produced in laboratories, but has absolutely changed her opinion. A new convert!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel better since starting this, I have had more energy since starting to take this Blackstrap Molasses with Iron.
Date published: 2011-10-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better for the body The first time I used this product I felt energized so much I could hardly sleep. I did not take it with enough food. However, I can tell that I am able to go a little further taking this supplement than when I was just taking other store bought brands. I will definitely stick with this one!!! Thanks Swanson's!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Vegetarian-Friendly Source of Iron As a vegetarian, I like having a plant-based source of iron like this. I have had no problems digesting it.
Date published: 2011-06-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good suppliment for iron I take this suppliment to increase and maintain normal iron levels. Great value. I have not noticed any unwelcome side effects that sometimes come from other types of iron suppliments. I like that the iron content comes from a natural food.
Date published: 2011-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Bio-Available Iron I've never had much success with straight Iron supplements. They can be difficult to digest and therefore difficult for the body to pick up and utilize. This supplement makes the iron naturally bio-available to my body. Great supplement. I'm very pleased.
