We are a provider of pure, premium molasses:  fancy, blackstrap & custom blends made from pure sugarcane. And we specialize in liquid and dry sugars, syrups, drink crystals and jelly powders.

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.)

Food fraud is real in the world of molasses. Some companies may blend refiners’ syrup with other sweeteners to mimic fancy molasses. Crosby’s fancy molasses is guaranteed pure and authentic.

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.

For food producers, molasses offers a number of important benefits:

Cost-effective sweetener – pure molasses is more cost-effective than other natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey or agave syrup.

Flavor enhancer – pure molasses brings a natural sweet flavor to a wide range of baked goods and sauces.

Natural colorant – pure molasses lets manufacturers shape product coloring without using artificial colors. Crosby’s Molasses has no additives, is gluten-free and non-GMO.

Uniform flavour & colour – We buy in bulk quantities so our molasses stays consistent from order to order, including its natural colour profile and flavour characteristics.

Extended shelf life – pure molasses is a natural humectant so helps extend the shelf life of baked goods.

Emulsifier – The natural emulsifying properties of molasses make it an ideal sweetener in sauces, marinades and dressings.
