Carob Powder Facts

  • Carob has been enjoyed by a variety of cultures for centuries, including the ancient Egyptians.
  • The word carob comes from the French word ‘carobe’, which originated from the Akkadian word ‘kharubu’.
  • Carob powder is made ​​from the beans of the Ceratonia siliqua – a flowering evergreen shrub that thrives in Mediterranean regions and the south of the United States.
  • The tree bears fruit (carob pods) after six to eight years of growth, and can easily bear 100 pounds of pods per year by its twelfth year, increasing to an average of 200 to 250 pounds annually as the tree grows older. It can continue to bear fruit for 100 years.
  • Carob shrubs are incredibly hardy and can go on producing carob pods for up to 100 years.
  • It's a crystal-like powder that freshens up and cools all recipes and gives extra depth to chocolate recipes in particular.
  • The pods are reddish-brown and can be up to a foot long. Carob has been used for food for over 5000 years. It is also called "honey locust" or St. John's Bread as this was consumed by John the Baptist while he was in the wilderness (Matt. 3:4). The husks that were eaten by the Prodigal Son in Jesus' parable (Luke 15:16) were discarded carob pods. 
  • The word carat, which is still used today to measure gold and diamonds, comes from the Arabic name for the carob seeds because of their uniformity in weight.
