Carob Powder (caffeine free) Description
Source of our Carob Powder
Our Carob Powder originates from the idyllic lands of Madagascar.
Naturally Sweet, it is derived from the pod (that contains a luscious, edible pulp) of a carob tree. Once dried and roasted, the pulp is ground into a powder!
About our Carob Powder
The carob bean is an extremely versatile superfood, possessing a sweet nutty cocoa flavour and is rich in soluble fibre.
Our carob powder can therefore be used as a healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. Its chocolate-like taste means that it can replace cocoa or chocolate.
Why buy our Carob Powder?
Free from caffeine or theobromine our carob powder is ideal for people sensitive to the effects of caffeine or who want to avoid caffeine.
It is lower in fat than cocoa and boasts 3 times more calcium too. Simply, substitute it for recipes that call for Cocoa or Chocolate. It is similar to cocoa powder in colour, yet has a characteristic special flavour and texture of its own.
For all the pet fanatics out there, carob is a pet friendly substitute to chocolate. Surprise them on the days they made you feel how special you are, with some carob treats made just for them!
How to use Carob Powder
It has a sweet and mild taste as compared to the bitterness of Cocoa. You could replace cocoa powder with carob powder one-for-one in your recipes but reduce the amount of sugar or sweeteners in the recipe by about 25%. Alternatively, you could use half cocoa powder and half carob powder.
Try using it to add a delicious extra dimension to your favourite smoothies, nut milks, protein shakes or to prepare a tempting range of raw food snacks and desserts, including raw chocolate, cakes and cookies.
