Organic Carob powder - from Crete, Greece; dairy free and gluten free - This delicious, very finely ground carob powder can be used as a flour in baking but also as a cocoa substitute. It can also be mixed with cocoa to provide a more chocolatey taste. It has higher nutritional value than chocolate and contains less than half of cacao's fat. It can be used in sweets, cakes, pastries, drinks and milkshakes like cocoa. As it is a natural sweetener it requires less additional sugar.
Carob is rich in minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, high in protein, and 'good' fibre. It is gluten free and more nutritious than cocoa
