Carob syrup is rich, dense, and complex like molasses, but not as thick or heavy. Like molasses, it is also rich in iron and nutrients (Chow, 2010).
Carob is not a common food allergen, but could cause an allergic reaction in some people. If you’re eating a food product made with carob syrup, it may contain other common food allergens that could potentially trigger allergy symptoms (Livestrong, 2011).
Carob syrup is used as a sweetener in a variety of foods and drinks, generally catering to an organic or vegan audience.
