So, what is melazas?

Melazas is a thick, dark, syrupy liquid made from the byproduct of sugar production, specifically the residue left after boiling and processing sugar cane. This ingredient is commonly used in Latin American and Caribbean cuisine as a natural sweetener and flavor enhancer for a variety of dishes and desserts. Melazas has a rich and complex flavor profile that can range from mildly sweet to robustly bitter, with notes of caramel and molasses. It is also a good source of essential minerals such as iron, calcium, and potassium. Melazas is a versatile ingredient that can add depth and complexity to a range of recipes, from baked goods to savory dishes.
