Carob Bean Pods (Cut & Sifted)

Carob is a large tree in the pea family that is native to the Mediterranean region. It is also known as St. John’s bread because St. John the Baptist reputedly survived in the wilderness by eating honey and carob bean pods.Dried carob pods taste like chocolate but are lower in sugar and lack the enzyme theobromine, which is toxic to some animals and an allergen to certain people.
Also Known As carob, carob tree, st. john’s bread, carob bean, algarroba, algarroba bean
