Organic Carob Powder Nutrition Facts

History

Carob has been cultivated for thousands of years in Mediterranean regions such as Spain, southern Italy and Morocco. The name comes from the Arabic word for carob: Kharrub. Berber tribes in Morocco Zayanes used carob powder for its medicinal properties, especially for the treatment of diarrhea in children.

Culinary Uses

Widely used in the food industry for its thickening properties, carob powder is often used as a substitute for cocoa. Carob can be added to desserts, pastries or homemade ice creams. As it is richer in sugar than cocoa, we advise you to reduce by about one third to the amount of sugar in your recipe.

Preservation

Preserve in a cool, dry space protected from light and humidity for up to 10 months.

Origin

Italy

Did You Know?

So many uses Written By: Kristi
My stomach doesn't deal well with chocolate so I've switched over to carob, and it's a really good substitute! I've tried a few different brands, this is definitely the best one. It has a nice subtle natural sweetness and no bitterness. I like that it's European sourced. I love it smoothies, avocado pudding and brownies. Yum!
Yummy addition to oatmeal & smoothies Written By: Jessica
It took me awhile to get accustomed to the taste of carob powder but now I use it all the time! Other brands can taste earthy - kind of like dirt, to be honest - but this one is sweet! I add it to oatmeal and smoothies, and use it in baking.
