Origin of Carob

Carob powder comes from the carob tree (ceratonia siliqua). This species is mainly found in the Mediterranean region. The plant is known for its pods with high nutritional value. Carob powder can be used as a substitute for cocoa, as the flavours are quite similar, only carob is sweeter and has a mild nutty taste.

The carob tree grows to 10 metres high. The crown is broad and semi-spherical, supported by a thick trunk with rough brown bark and sturdy branches. The carob tree is widely cultivated, because of the locust bean gum made from its seeds, but it also still grows wild in eastern Mediterranean areas. Carob trees can survive long periods of drought, but to grow fruit for carob powder, they need 500 to 550 millimeters of rain per year.

Processing to Carob Powder

Carob powder is made from the peel and pulp of the pods of the carob tree. The pods are up to 20 cm long and about 3 cm thick. After harvesting, the carob pods are dried and sieved. The seeds are removed for the production of locust bean gum. Then the carob pods go into the oven and are roasted. After this process, the pods can be processed into carob powder.

The sweet taste of Carob powder

The carob powder has a nice light brown colour. It has a slight caramel flavor and is sweeter than cocoa. In addition, carob powder also has a sweet aroma, which provides a nice smell.

Use of Carob powder

Carob powder is a well-known alternative to cocoa and is used in various chocolate products. Use carob powder as a substitute for cocoa in baked goods such as cakes and biscuits or process it in chocolate milk and ice cream.

I was totally amazed by the taste of this carob powder, I did not expect it to come so close to the taste of real cocoa but wow! What a surprising purchase (Translated from Dutch)
great for baking!
I use the carob powder in baking and it really gives off a delicious flavour. I will definitely buy it again! (Translated from Dutch)
I like the quality
I have ordered twice and now ordering for the third time. I like the quality which is biological/organic and it adds perfect taste to the cakes. This can be stored for a long time in the house too.
