Organic Carob Powder
Our organic carob powder is a deliciously sweet vegan alternative to chocolate and cocoa powder.
Carob is considered to be a beneficial food as it is high in many nutrients, is caffeine free, low in fat, high in protein, is low-allergenic, non-addictive and contains healthful anti-oxidants. It is often used in elimination diets and detox programs as it is very gentle on the body and is a healthy carbohydrate source.
Carob has a rich robust flavour and goes well with coconut, almond or soy milk.
Carob powder can be used to make a delicious warm drink no different to a hot chocolate (except in flavour of course). It combines well with all milks and the sweetener of your choice. We recommend a Soy Carob sweetened with a teaspoon of natural honey. Carob powder can also be used in baking cakes, muffins or brownies just as your traditional cocoa powder is.
