Carob powder is made from the long bean-like pods of the carob tree, a flowering evergreen shrub with native roots to the Mediterranean. Used as a replacement for cacao or cocoa, carob has a naturally sweet taste, without the stimulants typically found in chocolate.
Besides being delicious, carob is high in fiber, a good source of calcium, and has B vitamins, potassium and iron—just a few healthy reasons to use carob in your favorite sweet recipe.
