Carob Buying Guide


Siesta Carob

Our Carob brand is called Siesta Carob – and all the carob we produce will carry this brand name.

Siesta carob products are an alternative confectionery made from Carob flour/powder. Our carob comes from Spain and is the highest quality available. The product comes from the husk of the locust bean which is gently roasted and then scrapped to provide a fine light powder. This is then mixed with palm oil which comes from an approved sustainable source. Soya Flour and natural flavouring make up the product. There is no dairy in the recipe but there could be traces from the machinery used.

Our carob is top quality and is naturally sweet, so we don't add ANY sugar. All our products are made in a Nut Free unit.
