Types of Molasses

Fancy Molasses

Fancy Molasses is the highest grade of molasses. It’s made from pure sugarcane juice that has been inverted into a syrup (not unlike the maple syrup-making process). Fancy molasses is tangy sweet in flavor and is often used as a natural flavour enhancer, a cost-effective sweetener and a natural colourant. It contains no additives, is gluten-free and non-GMO.

Standard of Identity: In Canada, only pure sugarcane juice inverted into a syrup can be classified as fancy molasses. (Fancy molasses is not a by-product of the sugar manufacturing process.)

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap Molasses is a nutrient-rich product with a darker color. Crosby’s blackstrap is a byproduct of the raw sugar manufacturing process and offers a robust, bitter-tart flavor. It’s used in a variety of baked goods, meat and vegetable dishes, and as a sweetener, flavour enhancer and coloring agent. Our blackstrap molasses is nutrient dense and is considered a good source of iron and magnesium and an excellent source of riboflavin and potassium. It is also considered a source of calcium, selenium, vitamin B6, manganese and copper.
