What is Molasses?

Molasses is a dark, viscous byproduct of the sugar refining process. It is obtained by boiling sugarcane or sugar beet juice until the sugar crystallises. The resulting syrup is then separated from the sugar crystals.

Its robust flavour profile offers a rich, bittersweet taste with distinct caramel and toffee undertones. It comes in various grades, ranging from light to blackstrap, each having unique characteristics.

Widely used in baking, marinades, sauces, and as a sweetener in some traditional dishes, molasses imparts depth and complexity to recipes. Beyond its culinary applications, it also provides essential minerals like iron, calcium, and potassium, adding nutritional value to its delicious allure.


The conversion of molasses can be affected by several factors, including its temperature, density, viscosity, and brands. On average, 1 cup is approximately 336 grams, 8.1 fluid ounces, and 240 millilitres.
