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 just receive my Nuts Online order (just two days after ordering) and couldn't be happier! Everything is lovely. I'm excited to make quinoa for the first time later today. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the carob powder. It has a chocolaty flavor with a bitter coffee notes and a little bit of a tang to it. Can't wait to make a smoothie! The quality of everything is wonderful and I'm already planning my next order. I also really love the convenience of the sample sizes that are available. Thanks to everyone at Nuts Online! :)”
