Description Recipes Serving Suggestions

Please note: Raw carob is not as sweet as roasted carob. Carob powders that are brown or dark brown have been roasted and are not raw. Foods Alive carries both varieties, so choose your preference above.

Part of the legume family, carob cultivation dates back to historic times. The tree produces an edible seeded fruit pod that ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans are said to have enjoyed for natural sweetness.

Our roasted carob powder is grown organically on a small farm in Australia. Pods hang from the tree on branches and take just under a year to reach maturity. Mature pods are harvested and allowed to naturally dry, then washed and processed into small chunks called kibble. The seeds inside the pod are removed and the pods are roasted and milled into a fine powder.

How to Use Our Organic Carob Powder:

Carob is used as a popular substitute for cacao since it only contains one-third of the calories, and it is virtually fat-free. Add carob powder to all your favorite smoothies, teas, coffee mixes, protein drinks, desserts or anything else you can think of. 3 tablespoons carob plus 1 tablespoon water can be used in place of each square of unsweetened chocolate in recipes. It even goes great on top of fresh fruit! Delight your friends with the best food ever! Enhance your pleasure to the maximum...enjoy!

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.
