Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Molasses is a  thick, brown to deep black, viscous by-product of the processing of sugar cane or sugar beets into sugar. The quality of molasses depends on the maturity of the sugar cane or sugar beet, the amount of sugar extracted, and the method of extraction.
It is enjoyed as a sweetener in many countries, particularly in England where it is called treacle. For hundreds of years, molasses and sulfur, or treacle and brimstone were thought to have healthy benefits, and children were frequently given doses of the product.
