As such the company aims to prioritise a product that is not only healthy and high in nutritional value but also full of natural flavour.

Carob contains many health benefits, which depending on how the plant is prepared, can be used as a natural remedy for human health issues. The pod consists of three different parts; the outer husk, the nutritive endosperm and the inner seed. They are high in protein, contain essential vitamins and are a healthy alternative to most snack foods.
Due to the high percentage of insoluble fibre contained in carobs, research shows they have the potential to lower cholesterol levels. They have naturally high levels of lignin and polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants work by binding to stomach acids and cholesterol in order to help them pass through the body and be excreted.
