Carob Flour/Carob Powder:
Flour from the pods of the carob bean, a member of the legume family. Can be used as a direct substitute for cocoa powder. It has a naturally sweet flavor, and unlike cocoa powder, is caffeine free and low in acid. Carob is high in fiber and helps strengthen the digestive tract. Can be found at well-stocked grocery stores and natural food markets, either raw or toasted.
