It possesses many vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium and magnesium. It’s believed that its creation lays in the first sugar plantations in Trinbago. From the 60s right up to the early 90s, it was commonplace for donkey carts with drums filled with molasses, to roam villages selling the black gold.
