Mollasses can be derived from Sugar Beet or Sugar Cane. It is from one of these that Betaine is also derived, but can't remember which one. Can anybody else help?

Fairly sure that betaine derives from sugar beet, never used molasses (knowingly) but would have thought that that maybe the one to go with?? http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Blackstrap molasses is the residue from refining sugar cane,the stuff that i`ve used in boilee mixes is from Holland and Barrett and is a very thick treacle like consistancy.

For groundbaits the cheapo 5 litre cans of liquid molasses used as a horse feed additive is good,enough for me this i believe is made from sugar beet rather than cane and is far less viscous.
