Carob is obtained from a tropical pod with a sweet, edible pulp and inedible seeds. After drying, the pulp is fried and ground into a cocoa-like powder.

Carob powder is obtained from the fruits of an archaic tree (Ceratonia silique), native to the Mediterranean basin, being one of the most widespread trees in this area. The fruit is an elongated pod type, 15-25 cm long, belonging to the legume family. Inside the pods are the seeds, by drying, frying and grinding, which yields carob powder, also called carob flour or carob. It has a special sweet taste, almost floral, and its appearance, color, texture and consistency are similar to cocoa powder, which can be substituted in various sweets or drinks. The consumption of carobs is mentioned since the beginning of history in the first Mesopotamian writings that praised their culinary versatility. Carob is also popularly called "St. John's bread", believed in ancient times that St. John the Baptist would have survived in the wilderness because of these fruits.
