Properties

A naturally sweet product organic carob powder is nutritious and a very good source of B1.  It is also a good source of Vitamin A, B2, Calcium, Iron and Potassium.

Uses

Despite chocolate’s good press in recent times, carob remains a healthy alternative.  As it is a naturally sweet product it is well suited to sugar free recipes.  It is also commonly used as a chocolate replacement for flavour purposes although there are differences in taste.
Unlike chocolate, carob is safe for dogs and therefore is great for doggie ‘chocolate’.


How to take or use carob powder

Add to taste to recipes for a sweet chocolate-like flavour.
