Citrus molasses is described as a by-product of the citrus juice industry. Citrus residue, mainly peel, is treated with lime, and then passed through a press. The press liquor is then evaporated to a viscous, dark-brown molasses, of about 72? Brix.

Citrus molasses is similar to cane blackstrap molasses, having about 45 per cent total sugars. However, it has more protein and a much lower ash content than blackstrap. Citrus molasses may be diluted and fermented for ethanol production, but it may need pretreatment to reduce the content of d-Limonene, commonly referred to as citrus stripper oil which tends to inhibit yeast growth.
