What is it?
What are its nutritional content and health benefits?
Organic carob powder can compete with cacao (the main ingredient in chocolate) not just in taste but also in nutritional value. It is actually a preferred dairy-free alternative. It also doesn’t contain tyramine, thenylthylamine and oxalic acid which could interfere with the absorption of calcium. Carob is also theobromine and caffeine-free, two stimulants found in chocolates which could trigger migraines.
It contains fibre for a healthy digestive system. A tablespoon of carob flour can provide 10% of the daily recommended intake for fibre. Fibre helps relieves constipation, upset stomach, and diarrhea in adults, infants and even animals and regularises bowel movement.
Low in fat and calories for weight loss and cholesterol management. Carob has beneficial effects for people who want to cut down their calorie intake or lose weight. Unlike chocolates, a tablespoon of carob powder contains just 13 calories and no fat at all, whether saturated or not. And because it’s naturally sweet, you don’t need to add sugar to it. All these play a role in helping one manage his weight and even lower cholesterol levels in the body.
Rich in calcium for healthy bones, teeth and regular heartbeat. One cup of carob provides 358mg of calcium per serving. That’s three times as much calcium as cocoa powder can provide. This mineral is vital in keeping healthy bones and teeth, blood clotting, maintaining a regular heartbeat and a healthy function of the nerves.
Carob has more Vitamin A than beets, asparagus and eggplants, as much Vitamin B1 as strawberries, and as much niacin as peas. Other vitamins and minerals found in carob include protein, Vitamins A, B, B2, B3, D, magnesium, potassium, iron, sucrose, pectin, phosphorous, barium and more.
