So, what is melaza?

Melaza, also known as molasses, is a viscous and dark syrup produced during the sugar refining process. This ingredient is commonly used in Caribbean and Latin American cuisines to add a distinct, earthy sweetness to dishes like beans, rice, and baked goods. Melaza is rich in nutrients such as iron, calcium, and magnesium, and has a lower glycemic index than sugar, making it a popular alternative sweetener. Its deep, robust flavor and smooth texture make it a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. Melaza can be found in most grocery stores and is a staple in many traditional recipes.
