Molasses is produced from sugar cane, mostly from the West Indies. Sugar Cane requires 12 to 15 months to mature. It is then cut and hauled to the factory where juice is extracted to make sugar, syrup, or molasses. At the factory, the cane is put on a conveyer and passed through knives that slice the it, then it is passed between a series of three iron rollers that press out the cane juice. The juice is strained and hydrated lime is added. The juice is then heated and pumped into a tank where all impurities and lime appear on the surface of the juice as scum or it goes to the bottom as sediment. If Supreme molasses is preferred the syrup is partially inverted. If sugar is desired the syrup is further evaporated. This mixture of sugar crystals and molasses is separated by a centrifugal chamber which has perforated walls. The molasses which is Blackstrap molasses is thrown through these perforations and the sugar crystals fall out the bottom of the chamber. The sugar crystals will then be taken to a sugar refinery were it is packaged.
