About Carob No Hydrogenated Fats Gluten Free, Vegan
A smooth, soft alternative to chocolate without the caffeine. Plamil blend their new carob bars to have a mild 'chocolaty' taste using cocoa butter (natural cocoa fat), which provides that distinctive 'bite' without containing elements in chocolate known to trigger migraines.
What is carob?: Carob pods are the fruit of the carob tree. Carob pods grow to 12 inches long. If you bite into a ripe carob, you will almost certainly enjoy its semi-sweet, mild flavour. It is rich in vitamins and minerals and contains no caffeine (theo-bromine), or oxalic acid. The carob seeds are removed (they go to make a different food ingredient) and the actual pods are ground into powder and roasted to make carob powder.
