After the final crystallization round, the remaining heavy, viscous liquid of final molasses, also called blackstrap, treacle, or C molasses, is sent to recovery. Final molasses still contains a considerable amount, about 30 – 40 % of soluble sucrose but no longer can be crystallized. Recovery can be done with different techniques, for example by ion exclusion or liquid chromatography. Control of the recovery process is of utmost importance to achieve an economically working factory.
