CAROB POWDER ROASTED – ORGANIC

Natural sweetener in pastry

Organic Roasted Carob Powder (Cerotonia Siliquain airtight containers of 200 g and 1 kg from Energy Feelings. Packagings are 100% recyclable.

Parts used: fruit.

Tree commonly known as Carob of the Fabaceae family, or its fruit carob – not to be confused with the African locust bean. It is widely cultivated for its edible fruits, and as an ornamental tree in gardens. The ripe fruit (dried pod) is often grounded into carob powder which is used as a substitute for cocoa powder. It has a sweet unique taste which is why it is commonly used as a natural sweetener in baked goods and pastries.

It is native to the Mediterranean region, including southern Europe, North Africa, the large islands of the Mediterranean; to the Levant and Central-East of western Asia in Iran.

You can find both Roasted and Raw Organic Carob in our range of gluten-free products. When roasted, carob is less bitter in flavour and therefore more popular as a sweetener in food use. Roasted carob is usually chosen for the taste and raw one for health benefits as it is higher in mineral and vitamin content (contains also vitamin D and folic acid). In order to choose the right kind for you, we suggest you to compare the nutritional value of both products.
