The first Greek document describing carob was over 4,000 years ago! The Greeks were the first ones to cultivate this plant and discover all the wonderful uses.
Carob comes from the pod of the tree which technically a legume about 15 to 30 centimeters long. These dark brown pods are rich in vitamin A and B vitamins along and have 8% protein. Carob is often used as a chocolate substitute and you'll understand why once you try it!
The pods are collected when they are brown, the pods are then broken up and the hard seeds are removed.
Next, the empty pods are washed and then dry roasted and ground into a fine powder.
