Greek Carob Products

We may well have the largest range of Carob products in theUK! All our products are hand made in Crete, and most of them are organic. Crete is famous for its Carob trees, and the Greek have been making food products from the pods for thousands of years. Our range includes whole carob pods, carob tea, carob powder and flours, pastas, syrups, vinegars, snack bars, halva and Rusks (Paximadia). 

Benefits of eating Carob: Carob is an extremely healthy food. It is rich in protein (8%), calcium, phosphorous, potassium and magnesium and contains iron, barium copper and nickel; it has healthy sugars, virtually zero fat, and lots of good fibre - which the 'good bacteria' in our guts love! Very good for the bones, hair, nails and for constipation! The carob syrup is also used as a tonic when you are run down. It helps reduce cholesterol and reduces risk of heart disease. Eating carob products may also reduce the risk of cancer.
