Syrups

Our pure syrups range from familiar ingredients like golden syrup, to highly specialised products for industrial use.

  • Golden Syrup

    Golden Syrup produced by Ragus, one of the world's leading pure sugar manufacturers, from its advanced manufacturing site in the UK that also produces a range of pure sugars, blends and glucose products. Ragus sources raw sugar from across the world to manufacture sugars, syrups and special formulations from its advanced UK factory. Ragus ships its sugars across the world, delivering on-time and in-full to customers across the brewing, baking, confectionary, and pharmaceutical industries.

    This is a traditional golden syrup made from natural sugars. It’s a partially inverted syrup with a sweetness value approximately 20% greater than sucrose, a distinctive, subtle colour, and a mellow flavour. It’s used as a humectant and to reduce crystallisation, which allows it to withstand higher baking temperatures for biscuits and cakes, as well as flapjacks and puddings. It contains no added flavours or colours.

    These are water-based sucrose solutions with a dry substance content of 66%, which can be made from white refined or natural raw sugars. Applications vary from sweetening to bulking (“mouth feel”), including use in beverages, fruit-based preparations, flavours and fragrances, dairy products, ice creams, toffee, sauces and as an aid for fermentation.

    Molasses is extracted from the juice residues created when sugar cane juice is boiled to extract as much sucrose as possible. These residues are very dark and contain trace minerals, as well as invert sugars, and colours that make up the natural raw flavour and aroma of molasses. It has a strong, robust, bittersweet flavour suited to Christmas puddings, toffee, savoury sauces and cooking marinades. Molasses is also used as a natural food colorant and a dietary supplement.

    This is a mixture of 95% invert sugar (an equal mixture of glucose and fructose created from sucrose) to 5% sucrose, with a sweetness value approximately 40% greater than sucrose. It’s used to hold moisture in food and reduce crystallisation in icings and fondants that need a soft texture. Inverts are used in ice cream and sorbets, making them easier to scoop by depressing their freezing point. This quality also helps preserve the quality of baked goods, cakes and sauces that are stored frozen.
