Description

Organic Carob Powder – natural ‘caramelly’ goodness.

Organic Carob Powder is highly addictive in the best kind of way.  Sprinkling its nutritional power over all your treats will become a new way of life.

This natural light brown powder is often added to brownies, homemade chocolates and bars.  It is made from dried, ground carob pods which come from a tree native to the Mediterranean region, North Africa and Asia.  Although carob is often substituted for cacao it has a very different flavour and as carob contains no caffeine or theobromine it makes a good choice for people who are sensitive to it.

Carob has a rich ‘caramelly’ taste which makes it great for children and adults alike.  If you enjoy experimenting with natural desserts then this is a must for your natural store cupboard.  This delicious, versatile powder can be used in baking, decadent truffles and smoothies.  Carob contains three times more calcium than cacao and contains no oxalates (compounds which inhibit mineral absorption).

If you have no reason to avoid cacao and love natural treats then take a look at our organic natural cacao powder, organic raw cacao powder or organic cacao nibs.
