High in fiber and a good source of calcium, carob is fat-free, cholesterol-free and has protein, B vitamins, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Unlike chocolate, carob is naturally sweet, and free of the stimulants caffeine and theobromine, as well as oxalic acid, which prevents the body from using calcium and zinc.

Our carob powder is made from organic, sustainably harvested carob pods, which are a member of the legume family. There are no additives, fillers, preservatives, or alternate processing aids. Unlike other carob powders, our raw processing keeps nutrients and enzymes intact while preserving the delicate sweet flavor naturally found in carob. Carob is naturally sweet, so less can be used when substituting for raw cacao powder in desserts or drinks. It is especially delicious with mesquite, which has a sweet and nutty flavor.
