QuoteQuoteUnfortunately though, it does not have a reading for treacle (you bunch of treacle loving freaks) How much sugar is in Treacle?Weigh out say 20 gms of tracle, add 180 gms (ml) of warm water. Stir to disolve the treacle.Check the gravity of the dilute treacle, look up the sugar equivalent and multiply by 10If the gravity is to low may be only dilute 1 to 4Then you know the sugar equivalent of say 450 gms of treacle
