Sweet and slightly bitter, raw carob is a great caffeine-free substitute for chocolate. Our organic carob powder is ground from raw Ceratonia siliqua pods. Raw carob powder can be used in baking, beverages, syrups, and smoothies. In addition, the powder can be macerated to make liqueurs and extracts.
The pod powder is usually roasted but can also be consumed raw. Carob is used in the same manner as cocoa powder and can be sprinkled on food or taken as a tea, extract, or capsule. Raw carob is usually perceived as having a bitter flavor which is lessened significantly by the roasting process. For this reason, the roasted product is more popular for food use. As a food, carob is most often used as a hypoallergenic substitute for chocolate.
