This 100% pure carob powder from the Australian Carob Co. is gently roasted to bring out its full flavour and ground fine to make it a versatile ingredient for cooking, baking and drinks both hot and cold. Mix some into the flour for uniquely delicious, naturally sweet pancakes, pastries, cakes and muffins, blend it into a milk shake or your morning coffee – you can even make a tempting carob icing. (If you want to use it in place of cocoa powder in a recipe, remember that you won’t need to add as much sugar as usual; half what the recipe calls for will probably work well.)
Many people use carob as a caffeine-free chocolate substitute that doesn’t require additional sweeteners, but it’s actually a wonderful superfood in its own right. It’s high in dietary fibre and antioxidants; contains vitamins, A, B, D and E; is a good source of calcium, magnesium and potassium; and has significant levels of gallic acid, a potent antimicrobial agent. Carob has been found useful in controlling weight, improving digestion and lowering cholesterol. Due to its calcium content, it also makes a good dietary supplement for osteoporosis-prone individuals.
