Discover some carob health benefits

Carob is extremely nutritious with numerous benefits for the health, including:


Rich in Fibres

Eating soluble fibres keeps your digestive system healthier by helping to prevent a number of gastrointestinal diseases and generally making you feel better.

A study published in the European Journal of Nutrition suggests that the consumption of food products containing carob flour will have a series of beneficial effects, helping to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides. The explanation given is that carob is rich in soluble fibres and its use can be very effective in the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol).

It is an antioxidant!

Did you know that carob’s antioxidant capacity is higher than that of wine!?

Due to its high polyphenol content, the consumption of carob helps to prevent oxidation and it is therefore considered a functional food. This means it reduces the harmful effect of free radicals and has the incredible ability to regenerate damaged cells in the body, lowering the risk of developing cancerous diseases.

And, of course, it also helps prevent premature ageing of the skin! 

Rich in Calcium and Magnesium


Two of the minerals found in carob are calcium and magnesium. These nutrients are essential to avoid the risk of osteoporosis and help boost your pain tolerance level. 

These minerals are considered an essential component in the diet of pregnant women as a means of strengthening the bones, heart, nerves and muscles of both mother and baby.
