Cane Molasses

Molasses is traditionally added to chaffs & mixes to reduce dust and to increase palatability. Sourced from eitherUKgrown sugar beet or tropically grown sugar cane, it is crushed and soaked in warm water into which the sugars dissolve and are then crystallised out. But not all the sugar is removed, what remains is a thick, brown, sweet liquid that is molasses.

Molasses roughly contains 40-50% sugar, and is typically added to coarse mixes at 8 -10%.
