Nutrient-Dense and Low in Calories

Carob (unsweetened) is a low-calorie, naturally sweet alternative to chocolate. It is rich in filling fiber and low in fat. Fiber, the indigestible part of carbohydrate, has been linked to a healthier weight, improved blood sugar control, and reduced cholesterol.

The pods and pulp of carob are edible, naturally sweet, and highly nutritious. Carob often replaces chocolate in recipes, yielding a lower fat, higher fiber product. Carob is also caffeine- and gluten-free. It is often used in vegan meal plans which eschew milk chocolate. Carob and locust bean gum (an additive derived from carob) can be used as additives in non-food products, such as cosmetics as well as in pet foods.

Good Source of Minerals

Carob is a non-dairy source of calcium. Two tablespoons contain about 4% of the daily value recommended for calcium. Studies show that calcium-rich diets may decrease the risk of osteoporosis and aid in weight management.

Carob fruits also contain important minerals including iron, copper, zinc, manganese, nickel, barium, and cobalt.
