My daughter was having problems with anemia and one of the ways we tried to add iron was blackstrap molasses. This is the first time I've had any experience with it,so maybe this is a dumb question but we've had the bottle for a few months and when I open it it makes a gassy sound,kinda like a soda that's low on fizz.Normal?or has it gone bad?Should it be in the cabinet (where it is) or on the fridge??: Thanks in advance!

That's normal - don't worry about it. Molasses does not need to be refrigerated. Some other good sources of iron to try are lentils, apricots, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, figs, and sea vegetables.
