A naturally sweet, highly viscous feed from sugar production

Molasses is an energy-rich, highly viscous syrup that can be used in animal feed to enrich it with energy and minerals.

When we produce our sugar it is not possible to extract all of the sugar that is contained in the sugar beet, as part of the sugar cannot crystallise in the thick juice. The sugar crystals are separated by centrifuging and leave behind a highly viscous syrup called molasses.

Molasses as a basic raw material for fermentation

Because molasses contains not only sugar and other carbohydrates, but also high proportions of crude protein and minerals, it has long been used as a raw material for the fermentation of yeast, alcohol and acids. Valuable amino acids can also be extracted from molasses, why it is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals.

Molasses – an important feed component

The sweet taste, high energy and material content, along with its excellent properties as a binding and pressing additive, make molasses an important raw material for the production of concentrated animal feed and mineral feed. Molasses is beneficial not just because of its taste, but also because of its outstanding digestibility. Molasses is a very quickly fermentable energy source for the microorganisms in the rumens of cattle. It also has a positive effect on the protein content of the milk.
