Organic molasses has been very hard to find lately. But as last we have some in again! Molasses is a by-product made during the extraction of sugars from sugarcane and sugar beets. The juice is boiled down until the sugars crystallize. They can boil the juice up to three cycles to extract as much sugar as possible. The syrup left over after is referred to as molasses. the darker the molasses, the less sugar it contains as it has been processed more. The final boiling produces black strap molasses. It should contain the least sugar and have the highest concentration of vitamins and minerals. The taste should be a deep and spicy flavour. If you buy certified organic molasses, it should have no residues from the growing period of producing the cane or beet. Previously the Australian certified organic sugar was processed first at the mill so there was no cance of mixing or contamination with outer conventionally grown sugar. At present, however, there is no Australian certified organic sugar or molasses products in commercial quantities available so they are being sourced from overseas growers.
