Carob is the fruit carob, a tree probably native to Syria and used for more than 4000 years, because of its nutritional and medicinal virtues.
Already cultivated among the Ancient Greeks, it would have spread throughout Mediterranean region. The word "carob" comes from the Arabic word kharrub which means "pod".
The carob tree is related to the tamarind tree; it is sometimes known under the name of "bread of Saint John", because a legend of the Bible tells that John the Baptist would have nourished its seeds with honey during his crossing of the desert.
The pod is not only edible (and delicious), it is also rich in sucrose and protein (up to 80%). Carob contains vitamin A, B vitamins as well as magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, barium, copper and even nickel.
The Arabs considered the carob to be an excellent pectoral softener to advise patients with chronic bronchitis.
The Zayan Berbers (Berber tribe of the Khénifra region, in the central Middle Atlas, Morocco) use it for its medicinal properties. Due to its high fiber content, it exerts a regulating effect on intestinal function and is used in cases of diarrhea or constipation in children.
Carob is used like cocoa and the chocolate, we put it in particular in cakes, cookies, drinks and confectionery. It is used as is or in combination with cocoa where the chocolate.
Contrary to cocoa, carob does not contain theobromine, a caffeine-like stimulant. The carob is very sweet, it is not necessary to add sugar when used instead of cocoa. However, the flavor of the carob should be enhanced, either by cinnamon or the mint.
This tree would have a very special mathematical property which has long been used by men ...
Indeed, Carob pods in the ripe state contain seeds whose shape and weight are surprisingly regular.
Because of this consistency in weight, we used these seeds as a unit of measurement ... The word "Carat" was born! Carob seeds gave the name to Carat (from the Greek Keration), 1 Carat corresponding to 1 seeds (200mg).
