Carob tree cultivation dates back to historic times. An evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean, it is part of the legume family. The tree produces an edible seeded fruit pod that the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans are said to have eaten raw for natural sweetness.

The pods are ground into a powdered form and used as a popular chocolate substitute. Rich in B vitamins and minerals, it has only one-third the calories of chocolate (cacao), and it is virtually fat-free while chocolate is half fat. Carob is free from the stimulants caffeine and theobromine found in chocolate which can be addictive & can cause allergies. Carob can be substituted for cocoa powder in any recipes. Instead of coffee for your morning pick-me-up, add this delicious powder into your next tea, smoothie, nut milk, juice, or dessert. Carob lowers the glycemic index of foods it is mixed, making it easy to create delicious and healthy shakes, cakes, truffles, fudge, & more.

Why Carob Powder?

Carob contains a wealth of minerals like copper, manganese, potassium, magnesium and selenium. It is especially rich in calcium and iron. Carob contains essential nutrients like vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and D.

Carob flour is an excellent source of natural dietary fiber, with two grams of fiber per tablespoon of flour. It contains pectin, a beneficial fiber that aids the elimination of toxins. In traditional medicine, carob was often used to treat diarrhea. It can still be used as a natural remedy for this purpose, with a dosage of 15 grams per day for children and at least 20 grams per day for adults. Because of its pleasant taste, most children will take carob readily when mixed in warm cereal or applesauce.

How to Use Our Organic Carob Powder:

Add carob powder to all your favorite smoothies, teas, coffee mixes, protein drinks, desserts or anything else you can think of. Just one or two spoonfuls can transform any recipe into a healthy chocolate treat. It even goes great on top of fresh fruit! Delight your friends with the best food ever! Enhance your pleasure to the maximum...enjoy!

Peruvian Carob March 15, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Townville, PA United States  
I'm a HUGE fan of so many of your other quality products but not the carob from Peru.  I've eaten carob for many decades because it tastes like chocolate (bonus: without caffeine).  Your Peruvian carob is a different color but, most importantly, it doesn't taste ANYTHING like chocolate or other carobs.  I bought four bags of this unfamiliar product, opened one, and wonder if I can return the unopened three as I tried my best but cannot tolerate the taste.  Sorry about the negative review (don't print it) but I'm only being honest.  I subsequently learned that the carob products I can tolerate must be the Mediterranean (Italian) variety. Different soils, different flavor?!  Seriously, can I return the other three?

Carob Powder October 6, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boston, MA United States  
The carob powder was honestly disappointing. I didn't expect it to be so bitter. I ended up throwing it out. Nothing at the fault of the company. I am used to the chattfields. Your other product are great!

Carob powder July 15, 2014
Reviewer: Ann from MA United States  
Love the fact that this carob is raw.  The usual product is roasted and has a totally different and sweeter taste.
