How is Carob Used?
Carob is commonly used in food. Because Carob is similar to chocolate, it can be used the same way, but it has several health advantages. These include plenty of fibre, antioxidants, lower amounts of fat and sugar, and no gluten. Plus, Carob confectionery contains vitamins such as A, B2, B6, and essential minerals. Importantly, Carob is also caffeine-free. Caffeine can be a handy pick-me-up, but it can also cause insomnia and anxiety, especially if consumed at night. In addition, Carob seeds contain very pure gum. Today, the gum is used in cosmetics, fireworks, pharmaceuticals, industrial oils, mayonnaise, chewing gums, ice cream, sandwich spreads, pet foods, and so much more. The Carob tree really is fascinating and incredibly versatile.
