    What is sugarcane molasses

    Molasses  is a by-product in the form of a thick liquid remaining after sugar has been extracted by condensation and crystallization

    brown sugarcane molasses

    Raw materials for molasses production can come from two types of agricultural products: sugar cane and sugar beets. However, based on climatic conditions and farming characteristics, molasses in our country is made from sugarcane.

    Properties of molasses

    Sugar molasses is liquid, slightly viscous and dark brown in color. However, the consistency and darkness of molasses will depend on many factors. Pure molasses will be almost a homogeneous solution and is soluble in water.

    sugarcane Chemical composition and nutrition of  molasses

    • Sugar : Soluble carbohydrates are the main nutritional components of molasses, of which sucrose is the main ingredient. The total sugar content in beet molasses is usually lower than that in sugarcane molasses, but contains almost all sucrose.
    • Sugar-free organic ingredients: The non-sugar organic substances of molasses determine many of its physical properties, especially its viscosity. It consists mainly of carbohydrates such as starch, N-containing compounds and organic acids.
    •  Mineral composition: sugarcane molasses is rich in Na, K. Mg and S. Molasses also contains a significant amount of trace elements such as Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn,…

    Application of sugarcane molasses

     In agriculture

    • Increase soil biological activity
    • Used in hydroponics to provide nutrients for plants
    • Used as a food source in microbial culture, GE biological enzymes, banana egg and milk fertilizer,..
     Currently, the most common applications of molasses are often found in the agricultural industry such as organic composting and microbial farming. At the same time, it is widely used in wastewater treatment and mixed into animal feed.
