Carob General Information
Carob pods grow on evergreen trees mainly in the Mediterranean countries. The tree can grow up to 30 feet tall. It has compound leaves, green flowers and large violet-brown fruit (bean pods). Ancient Grecians called Carob the Egyptian fig and used it to treat stomach pain and promote digestion. The Egyptians used the sticky properties of Carob seed as an adhesive binder in the mummification process. The Romans ate the pods when they were green and fresh for its natural sweetness, and for centuries Carob pods have been eaten as a remedy for diarrhea. They also used the pods to expel worms. Carob was also used as a treatment for poor eyesight and eye infections. Carob is a healthy alternative to chocolate. It is caffeine free and is naturally sweet, therefore it has less sugar than chocolate. It is a good substitute for cocoa powder in recipes that call for cocoa. Carob is eighty percent protein and contains vitamins A, B, B2, B3, and D. It is rich in calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. Carob is also high in pectins, lignans, and tannins. The pods have laxative properties and the bark is astringent.
