Carob Powder

About Carob Powder

  • Carob is made from the locust bean pod, which is also called St. John’s Bread.
  • Carob powder is a healthier option and is a good substitute over cocoa powder. It can be substituted in a 1:1 ratio carob to cocoa.
  • Carob is naturally sweet and is caffeine free.
  • Carob is only 2% fat compared to 52% fat found cocoa.
  • Carob is available raw or roasted. The roasted version is reminiscent to chocolate.
  • Most health food stores carry carob powder. If you live in my community it can be purchased in Amaranth Foods.
