Carob – Sweet Treat Packed with Nutrients

Carob – Interesting?

I must admit I have dismissed this in the past, probably

because of my first experience tasting it as a substitute

for chocloate. It didn’t rate for me at the time.

Carob is a tree that comes from the Mediterranean

Region and a member of the pulse family.

According to history, the Romans used to
eat the pods for their natural sweetness.

Carob powder can be used as a substitute for cocoa
powder in cookies, cakes, candies and porridge.
By the way that's how I have been enjoying it so
much lately. I'll tell you how I make it in a moment.
Before let me talk about all the nutrients this small
pod contains.

What does Carob contain?

To start, it contains vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D.

It is specially high in calcium –

  • it has more than three times as much calcium as milk
  • also has phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese and copper
  • Carob is eight percent protein and is high in fiber.

Carob also has minerals that are important for thyroid health.
and  assist in the production of hormones beneficial

to hypothyroid sufferers. Just letting you know this,

as carob really is not often mentioned in research.

 

The Taste..

It's sweet and a bit like chocolate but has less fat and
calories.

One of the great things about carob is that it is very
alkaline. It's pH value is 10.6, yes, wow. You know how
crucial is for your health to eat alkaline foods.

Carob is a good food for the lungs. It helps with low
vitality, poor circulation, ulcerations, bowel
inflammations and diarrhea.

Infants have been treated with carob for diarrhea for ages.

Ask your grandmother she will remember.

A Fantastic Drink Recipe

Mix in a pot;

  • 1 tbs of brown rice flour with about 1 cup of almond unsweetened milk
  • 2 tsp of carob powder
  • heat it up at medium-low temperature and let it
  • simmer for about 10 minutes until it gets the consistency of a porridge
  • add some stevia to taste and a
  • few pieces of banana or a fig chopped.

Hope you try it.. and like it. Eating and nourishing your
body can be very fun and soul warming, don't you think..

Carob is not going to change your thyroid condition I don't feel but this

was interesting so I felt I would pass it onto you.

I have tried to find any recent research on carob, but I can't seem to find any.

To your health and joy,

Suzanne
