Most people think of carob as a chocolate substitute and with an “almost chocolate” flavor, it is a good one and without caffeine. Carob is very nourishing, high in Gallic acid which gives it many antiseptic properties. It is also rich in phosphorous and calcium. Its other name, St. John’s bread refers to the story that St. John the Baptist lived on carob in the wilderness. It is used today to treat diarrhea in both children and adults.
