Karob

POSSIBLY THE PERFECT CAROB POWDER

 

     


An organic, Non-GMO Verified® carob powder with excellent flavor 

Known as the ‘healthy chocolate’, for years, carob powder has traditionally been used as a chocolate and cocoa substitute. It has only one-third the calories, is virtually fat-free, non-allergenic and does not contain the caffeine or theobromine present in cocoa. Lately, carob’s reputation as an ingredient in foods has grown in its own right – and consumers are increasingly drawn to many of its nutritional and organoleptic properties. Carob is naturally sweet and often won’t require additional sweeteners.

KAROB™ Organic Carob Powder is an ideal choice when trying to attract the attention of consumers. It is Non-GMO Verified by the Non-GMO Project. KAROB is a 100% natural carob powder. The process by which it is manufactured – light roasting by indirect heat and mechanical wet-milling – helps maintain the flavor and nutrition of the material. Rich in polyphenols and insoluble dietary fiber, KAROB is distinguished by its potassium content – over 0.9%.
