The carob aroma and taste is different to cocoa, and loosely mimics chocolate. When you taste the dry powder there is a nutty, fruitiness with almost a hint of coffee at the end. The powder has a certain natural sweetness which makes it suitable for making a hot chocolate style drink. Carob powder is caffeine-free and this can be useful for people sensitive to the effects of caffeine or who want to avoid caffeine.
Carob bars - all of the taste of cocoa, without the cocoa!
Carob powder is frequently used as a substitute for cocoa powder when baking, although more carob powder is required to provide a similar level of chocolatey flavour. There is a good level of calcium in carob powder and it contains less calories than cocoa. If carob and cocoa powder are mixed together then they provide a natural source of several of the major minerals, namely magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Use carob in a similar way to cocoa in cakes, desserts, biscuits, ice cream, caffeine-free chocolate, hot chocolate drinks and many other recipes. It is a little sweeter than cocoa, so please allow for this when adding sugar.
