Also known as premium cane syrup, our unsulphured homestyle molasses is made from pure mature sugar cane. Unsulphured means that the cane has been allowed to ripen naturally in the field. A sulphured molasses, on the other hand, is made from young sugar cane that requires the addition of sulphur dioxide to keep it fresh. Once the cane is harvested it is crushed to extract the juice which is then evaporated through a boiling process to promote sugar crystallization.
There are several different types of molasses depending on whether it is from the first boiling, second boiling or third boiling. The more the sugar syrup is boiled, the more darker and robust flavor it will have. Homestyle molasses is the richest in color and flavor of all the other types of molasses. It provides a broad versatility for a variety of liquid sweetener formulations. It can be used in beverages, confections, dairy items, coatings and other food products.
