Frequently Asked Questions
What is the carob in Siesta Carob Flakes?
Carob powder is produced from the pods of the Ceratoma Siliqua tree, which is related to the pea plant and grown commercially throughout the Mediterranean. The powder is then treated, naturally in the case of Siesta’s products, to produce a variety of products, from flakes to bars, of sweet confection.
Carob is a popular alternative to chocolate that is dairy-free and much lower in sugar. Relative to chocolate, carob has an earthy flavour, less natural bitterness and more natural sweetness, making products like Siesta’s Carob Flakes a great choice for no-added-sugar applications where chocolate would need to be artificially sweetened.
