Carob Powder (ACO) 350g

Organic Carob Powder is naturally caffeine-free and delightfully sweet, with a unique caramel-chocolate taste. It is calcium and antioxidant rich, low in fat as well as high in fibre, making it a fantastic cacao alternative!

Use Carob as an alternative flavour to chocolate in cakes, biscuits and desserts. Organic carob powder can be substituted in place of cocoa or cacao at a ratio of one to one, however you may choose to reduce the other sweeteners by roughly one quarter.

Carob powder is the ground pulp (or kibble) that surrounds the carob beans, aka locust beans, within the pod. Part of the pea family, carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua) originate from the Mediterranean. This raw Carob powder is grown in Australia and Certified Organic.  Carob has a naturally sweet taste that is quite earthy. Although Carob is often used in place of chocolate, the flavour is much milder and does not have the bitter notes of cacao. This raw carob powder is full flavoured with a light brown colour, sweet aroma and fine texture. Enjoy it in beverages, raw treats, confectionery and baked goods.

No GMO. No added sugar or preservatives.

How to Use 

Carob powder is delicious in hot or cold beverages. Add a spoonful to smoothies, or dissolve in a little warm water before adding ice and your favourite chilled dairy or plant milk. For a substitute to hot chocolate, simply replace cocoa with an equal amount of carob. As carob is naturally sweet added sugar is not necessary, although a dash of honey, coconut nectar or maple syrup does add extra flavour.

To create a lovely non-dairy chocolate substitute, combine carob powder with an equal amount of coconut oil, with a dash of maple or coconut syrup. Dip fresh fruit in the melted mix (try banana, mango and strawberries), stir through mixed seeds and chopped nuts and spoon ‘clusters’ on to greaseproof paper to set; or add dried fruit (Inca and goji berries are great) and set in a slab.

This raw carob powder is also wonderful for raw food treats and home-baked goods. To use carob powder as a replacement for cacao powder in recipes, substitute 1:1. If replacing solid dark cooking chocolate, use 2-3 times as much carob powder by weight.

Growing & Processing

The carob tree ‘Ceratonia Siliqua’ produces carob beans which are 90% pulp, also referred to as kibble, and 10% seed. The kibble is what is used for carob powder and is made up of sugars, tannins and non-starch polysaccharides. The kibble is roasted and ground to make the carob powder.
