As a soil amendment and fertilizer ingredient, International Molasses’ EcoMolasses portfolio brings several benefits. First and foremost, it is completely natural, a key differentiator from products using man-made ingredients that may disqualify a food item from an organic designation. It is also food-grade, meaning it is independently edible, and is instantly recognizable by discerning organic manufacturers as safe and natural.
Its nutritive value is another asset. EcoMolasses is high in bio-available minerals – meaning minerals that plants can easily absorb. Among other minerals, molasses provides soil and fertilizer with easily “digestible” iron that plants need. EcoMolasses also is relatively high in carbohydrates, which are important for plant feeding and soil supplementation as they feed microorganisms that help break down undesirable components in the soil, such as thatch (built-up dead plant matter) or other manufacturing byproducts.
