View Full Version : I just discovered Carob
Ok I must admit I was very skeptical of trying carob as I used to be a former SAD chocoholic so I didn't try it forever until now. I have seen it in many a recipe on this raw board so I finally bought some chips and powder. I think I am in love with it now. Can someone please tell me what carob is made out of? Does it have any health benefits?

I'm with you, morn, I just tried carob recently after putting it off because I love cacao so much! Carob powder is made from the flesh of carob pods, from the carob tree....it's supposed to be easy on the digestive tract and help with diarrhea, but is also known for it's laxative qualities. I'm still getting used to the smell of it though....I don't know if it's just the brand, but I find it kind of stinky! Hasn't stopped me from using it though!

I love carob too!
I do believe it is high in calcium also. And of course it has no caffeine!
