About Carob

by Dave

I have read two things about carob that seem to be opposites, the first that carob is high in sugar and the second that carob helps regulate blood sugars.

Please let me know your thoughts.


Hi Dave,

I think the confusion about carob may be based on what form of carob you are referring to.

The natural form of carob from the tree and pods would be what is being referred to as carob that helps to regulate blood sugar. This can also probably extend to organic carob powder.

I suspect that when you read that carob is high in sugar, they would be referring to carob that is made into candy and carob chips, etc., where sugars are added during the process.
