100% raw and delectable, our carob powder originates from Italy and offers an amazing chocolate alternative that can be used in a variety of drinks, dishes and desserts. Carob powder originates from carob pods, which are a member of the legume family. Carob is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, while providing a slightly sweet and earthy flavor.

It is also high in calcium, phosphorus, potassium & magnesium and contains iron, manganese, barium, copper and nickel. Additionally, Carob is free of the stimulants caffeine and theobromine, as well as oxalic acid, which prevents the body from using calcium and zinc. Some studies have indicated that carob can lower cholesterol..|
|Recommended Usage||Carob is naturally sweet, so less can be used when substituting for raw cacao powder.
