Dark Carob Powder - 454g

Dark Carob Powder

Size: 454g


Gluten free

Carob powder is obtained from grinding the pulp of the carob pod. It is naturally sweet, high in carbohydrates, and has a very low fat content, and no caffeine. Ambrosia’s carob powder is pure and dairy free.

Carob is sometimes used as a substitute by those unfortunates who are allergic to chocolate, since its flavor is vaguely similar.  Others use it as a healthy alternative to chocolate, since it contains less fat and no caffeine.  It's available as raw pods, chips, and powder.

Ingredients: 100% pure carob. Nothing added; no sugar.

Substitutes: cocoa powder. Most cookbooks call for cocoa to be substituted for carob measure for measure, but since cocoa has a stronger flavor, you should use less. Also, reduce sugar by about ¼ as cocoa powder is naturally sweeter. Cocoa powder has more fat than carob powder, and some caffeine. Since carob burns more easily than cocoa, the recipe may call for a lower oven temperature than is necessary with cocoa powder. Due to its lower solubility, making a smooth paste of carob powder with warm water may be helpful before adding it to the other ingredients in a recipe.

Shelf life: Under proper storage, the product has a 1 year shelf life.
