Carob Powder

(Carob Powder) Carob powder is produced by grinding the roasted beans from the pods of a Mediterranean evergreen leguminous tree. For many people, including us, carob has taken the place of cocoa and chocolate. And, unlike cocoa and chocolate, carob has no caffeine and almost no fat. And since carob is sweet, it requires much less sweetener than chocolate and cocoa. See the nutritional chart below.
