Essential Spice Molasses Powder is a viscous by-product of the sugar refining process. Sugar cane is crushed and the juice is boiled over and over. The result actually has a low sugar content, but high mineral and vitamin content. The robust flavor makes it a perfect addition to gingerbread, molasses cake, and barbeque sauces. This natural powdered molasses is the perfect addition to campfire cooking as liquid molasses can be rather heavy to lug around. Essential Spice dried molasses powder will give you some sweetness and a hint of bitter.
