Carobs are flowering evergreen trees or shrubs, they are cultivated for their edible pods, or as a decorative tree in gardens and landscapes. The carob tree is native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East, and for years it was used as a substitute of sugar, before sugar, and in its powder form as a substitute of cocoa. Carobs are richer in calcium than milk, they contain up to 4% protein, up to 63% phosphorus, vitamins A, B & C, iron and many other minerals. Compared to chocolate, carob is three times richer in calcium, has about one third less calories, and about seventeen times less fat, it is also caffeine-free. Carobs also have natural therapeutic qualities for stomach aches and for the regulation of the bowel. Carob trees flourish in Cyprus; the country is world-wide known for the quality of carobs and carob products. Cyprus carobs are rich in natural sugar content (more than 50%) a fact that explains their high demand in the international market.
