Ceratonia siliqua, commonly known as the carob tree, St John’s-bread, or locust bean (not to be confused with the African locust bean) is a species of flowering evergreen shrub or tree in the pea family, Fabaceae.
It is widely cultivated for its edible pods, and as an ornamental tree in gardens.
The ripe, dried pod is often ground to carob powder which is used as a substitute for cocoa powder.
The carob pod consists of two main parts which have a very different composition and are separately used to produce different goods: The pulp accounts for 90% and the seeds for 10% of the pod weight.
The pulp contains about 48 – 56% of sugars and 18% of cellulose and hemicellulose.
Carob pods were eaten in Ancient Egypt.
Carob juice drinks are traditionally drunk during the Islamic month of Ramadan.
It was also a common sweetener and was used in the hieroglyph for “sweet” (nedjem).
Dried carob fruit is traditionally eaten on the Jewish holiday of Tu Bishvat.
Also, it is believed to be an aphrodisiac.
