Carob pods and carob powder

Car­ob is the pow­der from the dried fruits of the car­ob tree. It has a frui­ty-sweet cara­mel fla­vor and is the­r­e­fo­re often used as an alter­na­ti­ve to cocoa.
Over­all, car­ob tas­tes swee­ter and less bit­ter than cocoa.

Is carob a better alternative to cocoa?

First of all, it must be said that car­ob does not con­tain caf­feine com­pared to cocoa. This is a huge advan­ta­ge becau­se caf­feine and its sti­mu­lant effects have las­ting nega­ti­ve con­se­quen­ces for our ner­vous sys­tem and our enti­re body.

You can find more infor­ma­ti­on about the harmful­ness of caf­feine in the Cof­fee Pod­cast.
Car­ob also con­ta­ins hard­ly any fat, which is ano­ther advan­ta­ge com­pared to cocoa.

Use of carob

In prin­ci­ple, car­ob can be used in the same way as cocoa. No mat­ter whe­ther in “cho­co­la­te cake”, ice cream, des­sert or coo­kie, the pos­si­ble uses are endless.

Car­ob is cle­ar­ly the bet­ter alter­na­ti­ve to cocoa and can be used wit­hout a guil­ty con­sci­ence. Howe­ver, you should be awa­re that car­ob is a legu­me and does not have the heal­ing pro­per­ties of fruits, vege­ta­bles, wild foods and herbs. So if you have deci­ded on your heal­ing jour­ney to reach your goal as quick­ly as pos­si­ble and, if pos­si­ble, to avo­id legu­mes in your pro­to­col, then you should also keep an eye on the amount of car­ob you consume.
