Carob is the fruit of the carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua), a plant native to the Mediterranean. Its pods, which contain a sweet and edible pulp, are dried and ground to produce a powder similar to cocoa. Carob has a naturally sweet taste and an aromatic profile that resembles chocolate, but with a maltier and less bitter note.

Nutritional Benefits

One of the main reasons carob is considered a healthy alternative to chocolate is its nutritional profile. Unlike cocoa, carob contains neither caffeine nor theobromine, stimulating substances that can have negative effects on some people. Additionally, carob is naturally gluten-free, making it suitable for those with celiac disease.
Carob is rich in fiber, which promotes digestion and helps maintain stable blood sugar levels. It also contains important vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Another advantage is its lower calorie content compared to chocolate, making it an ideal choice for those on a low-calorie diet.
