Carob Powder

About Carob Powder

  • Carob is made from the locust bean pod.
  • 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 powder.
  • Carob is naturally sweet and is caffeine free.
  • Carob is only 2% fat compared to 52% fat found in cocoa.
  • Carob is available raw or roasted. The roasted version is reminiscent to chocolate.
  • Look for carob powder in health food stores. If you live in my community it can be purchased in Amaranth Foods.
