CAROB is nutritionally GRAND!
Adding carob to our diet can provide many health benefits:
Excellent source of dietary fibres, which contribute to keep the digestive system healthy, helping to reduce the body weight and lowering the cholesterol
It can prevent overeating by satiating the hormone that informs the body that it is hungry (postprandial ghrelin), so can help to control body weight
An excellent source of antioxidants, Carob is composed by vitamin A, B1 and rich in D-pinitol, a component that lowers the blood sugar level in type II diabetes
Gluten free with low amounts of fat and natural sugars, becoming an excellent ingredient to make health-beneficial and delicious food products
No allergenic agents, unlike cocoa, it doesn’t contain any stimulants such as caffeine, theobromine or phenylethylamine, making carob a great carob alternative
CAROB trees are environmentally GRAND!
The Algarve and other Mediterranean regions combine the perfect conditions for carob trees to grow organically, free of pesticides. A durable and resistant tree with no deceases, that just grows!
It doesn’t require much irrigation being very sustainable on water consumption. With the advantage of growing in infertile soils, they can also be used to revalorize lands once left to abandonment.
They are an excellent carbon dioxide sink that contributes to mitigate global warming effects.
Carob trees are not only beautiful but also GRAND for the planet....
