For those of you who struggle with the stimulatory effects of natural cacao, carob is a great alternative for you! It does not contain caffeine or theobromine, which are known to make people anxious and restless.
Carob is high in calcium, just 3.5 oz of carob will provide you with almost half of the daily calcium recommendation. Carob is also high in vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D and is rich in minerals such as magnesium, iron, phosphorus, manganese and potassium. It is a great source of protein and fiber and also contains pectin, which has been known to lower cholesterol levels. Carob is naturally sweet which means that you do not have to add sweetener when using carob as an ingredient.
This certified organic carob powder contains no additives or preservatives of any kind. It has been lightly roasted.
Raw carob powder is very difficult to find without mould. This is the reason that we recommend using this lightly roasted powder. We are very happy with the quality of this carob and have made many delicious desserts with it!
