    Thank you for this article on carob. I am allergic to chocolate and was wondering about carob.

    OK, but what is carob? Is it something else to add to our smoothie? Thanks

    What about Carob molasses which is naturally very sweet without any sugar added?

  • ANJ

    We eat it mixed with tahini in a sandwich in Jordan, our cycling group call it rocket fuel :-)

    i read that it helped a lot of men with fertility problems to boost semen quality. Is there any research to proof that?

  • Tobias Brown

    It seems like carob chips are made with hydrolyzed safflower oil. Should this concern us? Maybe the amount is so small that it’s not an issue… No?
