Description

About our organic carob powder

Soil AssociationCountry of Origin: Peru
Botanical Name: Ceratonia siliqua

carob-bean

Carob powder originates from the pod of the carob tree, a member of the legume family and each pod contains a sweet, edible pulp which is dried, roasted and then ground to make carob powder. It’s similar to cocoa powder in colour and can be substituted one-for-one in recipes, but carob has its own unique flavour and texture. It’s sweet, mild and packed with pectin. Traditionally, carob was used to soothe an upset stomach.

Carob powder is a great alternative to chocolate as, unlike chocolate, it doesn’t contain caffeine, theobromine or other known chemicals, and it can be used in a variety of drinks, dishes and desserts.

Our raw carob powder is full of nutrients, including B vitamins, copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc. Low in fat, carob is an alkaline food (helps maintain a healthy pH level in your body) and could help promote healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Carob is also naturally sweeter than cocoa, which means you can cut back on sugar when you use it as a substitute in your favourite recipes.

One 1tbsp of unsweetened carob powder has 25 calories, no fat, no saturated fat, no cholesterol, and 6g of carbohydrates.

Suggested use:

Add to smoothies, shakes, home-made ‘chocolate’, raw puddings, cakes and baking.
