Molasses

Molasses is a dark, sweet and thickly syrupy sugar byproduct. Molasses vary in color and sweetness, depending on the type and amount of sugar used during its processing.

How much does liquid feed molasses cost?

These products are based on molasses, which has a dry matter of 75%. As the component ingredients, including water, are added the dry matter begins to fall, usually to 55%-60%.

The products are sold on a cost per litre delivered so they have to be converted to a cost per kilogram for accurate comparison.

For example, 1 litre of a 55% dry matter molasses based product will be approximately 1.2 times the weight of 1 litre of water. So each litre costing 65c will cost 54.2c/kg ($533 ÷ 1.2 kg) or each tonne is $542 'wet'.

But the moisture content must be accounted for. In this example, if the moisture content is 55%, the dry matter cost for each tonne ($542 ÷ 0.55) becomes $985/t dry matter.

For an 8% urea content liquid supplement, eaten at 1 litre/day, this means 80 grams of urea costs 65¢ to deliver into the animal each day. In addition this cost supplies approximately 0.5 litres of molasses (or 6 MJ of energy) and the mineral additives. This is not a useful amount of energy, which is why you need more than 1200 kg DM of pasture to supply the source of energy (carbohydrate).

What is blackstrap molasses and what is the price and where can you purchase it?

The thick viscous syrup we call blackstrap molasses that provides the robust bittersweet flavor to baked beans and gingerbread is available throughout the year.

Blackstrap molasses is just one type of molasses, the dark liquid byproduct of the process of refining sugar cane into table sugar. It is made from the third boiling of the sugar syrup and is therefore the concentrated byproduct left over after the sugar's sucrose has been crystallized.

The truth behind the phrase "slow as molasses" becomes apparent when you reflect on molasses's thick, viscous, syrupy texture. Featuring a robust bittersweet flavor, blackstrap molasses helps create the distinctive taste of dishes such as baked beans and gingerbread. Blackstrap molasses is very dark in color, having a black-brown hue.

What was the 'great molasses spill' in Boston's North End?

Boston was part of the triangular trade route, which involved molasses, rum, sugar cane, slaves, and money, as well as ships nedded for all this activity. New England forests provided trees for the large sailing ships, and the molasses was stored in a the Noth End, which at that time was very industrial in nature. Rum would be made with the molasses. True story - the explosiion took place during the summer - temps had been abnormally high and built up pressure inside the tank caused it to explode - sending molasses streaming through the North End, drowning people and livestock. The prior answer is incorrect. The spill occurred in January 1919 not in the summer. It did happen on January 15, 1919 if you wan't a lot more information you should read the book Joshua's Song it's Historic Fiction it's a great book! answer 3 Good job. Jan 15 1919, it was unseasonable warm 43 degrees and the container was filled more than it would have been in warmer weather. the molasses expanded and broke open the container. A 30 foot wave was seen. 6 people killed and 21 horses. 6 months to clean the mess and 6 years to clear all the court cases associated with the molassacre...lol.

Can molasses be used by diabetes patient?

Yes and No.

Molasses is essentially a form of sugar. Most diabetics can eat very small amounts of sugar, although it is not a good practice, since the desire for sweets can get reinforced each time you eat very sweet foods. So, ideal would be NO consumption of sugars for diabetics, although this is not always achievable. That is when moderation becomes very important.

"All things in moderation" is a wise maxim. Diabetics should maintain a diet of approximately the same number of calories each day and controlled with each meal and snack to avoid blood glucose spikes or dips too low. The calorie allotment can be increased if exercise is increased, however, the control of and slow, even consumption of calories is very important for those with diabetes mellitus.

Choosing foods to get the maximum enjoyable and nutritious diet involves balancing the calories and being sensible about choices. When you eat "empty" calories like sugars, you are, in a sense, using up your allotted calories more quickly with each bite and getting no or little nutrition in the process. An occasional sensible splurge is usually acceptable by diabetics' physicians, but ask yours before you use any forms of sugars.

For comparison of molasses to other sweeteners:

Molasses, which is a by-product of the sugar making process from sugar cane or sugar beets (or some fruits like grapes), has little to no nutritional value. Calories are 58 per Tablespoon and there are 14.9g of Carbohydrates, of which 11.1g are sugars. There is a small amount of sodium (salt). And, you get no protein, no fats, and no fiber, all essential nutrients.

Sorghum "molasses" is a different ingredient, and is not really molasses, it is actually a syrup that is made from a sorghum plant. This would be a better choice, since it, at least, has some nutritional value. Calories are also slightly less with 40.7 calories per Tablespoon and 651 per cup. A Tablespoon has approximately 9g of carbohydrates plus the nutrition of some fats, protein and fiber with a small amount of sodium. Some people do not enjoy the extra flavors in sorghum, others choose it for that reason. It is not always easily found on the supermarket shelves, though.

Granulated sugar is totally "empty", with no nutritional value and 48 calories per Tablespoon. The carbohydrate content is all sugar and there is no protein, no fats and no fiber. It is the considered the worst choice by most nutritionists and dietitians.

Artificial sweeteners have no or negligible calories, but again, no nutritional value and some worry about all the chemical processing and fear potential side effects. For others, these are their best choices despite the negatives, and first discussing their use with your physician or nutritionist is always wise.

Stevia is another sweetener made from a plant. It has no calories and no nutritional value, although it is preferred by some people because it is "natural" and plant-based and they enjoy the flavor.

What was the molasses act 1733?

Leading up the the molasses act of 1733, there were two rivaling trade companies that battled for America's business: the French West Indies and the British West Indies. Since Britain maintained control over America at the time, the British Parliament instituted the Molasses Act of 1733 over America so all molasses and sugar products that were not manufactured by Britain would be taxed 6 pence per gallon. Therefore, people wouldn't buy molasses from the French Indies because it would be more expensive, so they would buy it from the British Indies & the British would be more successful.

What type of sulfur was used when people used it with molasses as a spring tonic?

It was a pure yellow crystalline form of elemental sulfur known as sublimed sulfur, or "flowers of sulfur." Sublimation, or evaporation without melting, is a common final purification step for sulfur. It is inexpensive and can still be obtained from many pharmacies -- usually by special order.

Robert Stokesbary has a web site featuring his father's sulfur "cure" for coccidioidomycosis, (cocci, or valley fever). This is a fungal infection of the lungs that is endemic to the U.S. Southwest. The experiences of some who have tried sulfur can be found there: http://www.breaman.net/ValleyFeverInfo/

What type of Molasses is the best to combat aging?

None at all! Molasses doesn't combat aging, if anything, the ridiculous sugar content will promote diabetes and shorten your lifespan. Those calories wasted on the empty sugar of molasses could have been better spent on fruits, vegetables and whole grains, all of which are high in vitamins and minerals, and have significant antioxidant activity.

What makes molasses foam?

Made it an hour ago for breakfast. Heated molasses until rolling, added a scant 1/4 tsp. baking soda to make it foam. You can't eat much because the sugar gets to you but it's delicious a couple of times a year, on hot biscuits.

Don't know the chemistry of it. Interested in how others make it and whether this is a "Southern" delicacy or a nationwide thing.
