Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Our carob powder is dark roasted for a rich chocolate flavor. Carob powder is naturally sweet, low in fat, and caffeine-free, which makes it the perfect replacement for cacao powder in your recipes.
How to Enjoy Carob Powder
Carob powder is used whenever a recipe calls for chocolate or cocoa. To replace cocoa for carob, simply use the same amount of carob. To replace chocolate with carob, use approximately three tablespoons of carob powder for each square of chocolate that the recipe calls for.
Carob can also be used as a sugar replacement. Carob powder is almost 50% natural sugar and can be used instead of sugar in virtually all bread and pastry products. This includes bread, waffles, cakes, pies, pancakes, cereals (hot or cold), crepes, muffins, etc. Of course, using carob will result in chocolate-brown colored foods and will impart a vaguely chocolate-like flavor. If this is undesirable, you can try mixing various amounts of carob and honey to find the mixture that suits you best.
Carob vs. Cacao
Carob comes from the pods of a Mediterranean evergreen tree, while cacao beans are used to make chocolate. Since cacao is very bitter in its original state, sugar is usually added to processed cacao beans in order to make chocolate. On the contrary, carob is naturally sweet and does not require any additional sweeteners. Carob is a great low-fat alternative to chocolate, which may contain milk to enhance the taste. Carob is also ideal for those sensitive to caffeine because unlike chocolate, carob doesn't contain stimulants such as caffeine and theobromine.

“I don't eat chocolate at all. And your carob seems to be as tasty as any carob I've ever had. I made a some cold carob milk... I guess the real test will be when I mix it with a frozen banana.”

“It took me forever to finally decide to place an order... I kinda thought, they're nuts how big of a difference can they be from say, the grocery store. Well They are AMAZING!!! The packaging is not only adorable but love that the bags are resealable!!
Your Carob powder is the best I have ever tasted!!!I just made Carob brownies and most carob I have tried, and I have tried a lot, is really bitter or has an off tang to it. Yours really does remind me a lot of chocolate!!! Pure Bliss!!!
I will be placing another order soon! Thank you for offering Organic options too!!!

“This the second time I have ordered from you. Your product, carob chips, carob powder is wonderful. Your service is excellent. I will look forward to ordering again.”
Maura, Burbank, IL June 26, 2013
“I was delighted with my first order from Nuts.com. I was having a difficult time locating carob powder, which I use to bake treats for my dogs (and granddogs). Your price was very reasonable, even with shipping and I couldn't believe how fast the order arrived. My first big laugh of the day came from the corrugated box it was shipped in. What clever advertising! I must add that the powder was packed beautifully in sturdy, reclosable bags. And now the email from you had me laughing again. I will definitely be ordering other things from you, and will HIGHLY recommend you to others. Your humor will go a very long way with me and people I know. Thanks for making my first experience with Nuts.com a great one.
Your new friend, Nutty Maura”
