Just wondered if it is truly raw or has it been heated like Maple syrup?

Nope. I believe it's been heated...
...and here you go...
Molasses is a thick by-product from the processing of the sugar beet or sugar cane into sugar. (In some parts of the US, molasses also refers to syrup.) In Nepali it is known as "Chakku". The word molasses comes from the Portuguese word melašo, which comes from "meli", the Greek word for "honey". The quality of molasses depends on the maturity of the sugar cane or beet, the amount of sugar extracted, and the method of extraction.

Heated, but if you just like the taste, yacon syrup is raw and tastes very similar! Good luck.

Molasses is the juice from Sugar Cane. It is a white(Clear) liquid that is Boiled down until it becomes a Brown Syrup.
