But what is carob?
Carob belongs to the legume family. It is sweet in flavour, and some people describe it as caramel-like.
Carob was first grown in Ancient Greece and used for its many health benefits. Now, Portugal is the largest producing country, Italy comes second, and Morocco third.
It is now often used in baking, especially as a substitute of chocolate because of its sweet taste. Carob pasta is not that popular, however, you will find it in some health food stores and online.
