A Bit About Australian Roasted Carob
The carob orchard was planted with grafted trees in 2000 on a 76-acre block of land, and today there are approximately 6000 trees encompassing seven different non-bitter, sweet varieties. Using sustainable farming practices, no insecticides or pesticides are used on the property. Carob pods, which hang from the tree in branches, take just under a year to mature. The pods are harvested in March and April and taken directly to the manufacturing shed located on the property where they are allowed to naturally dry–to moisture levels of 10% or lower–for processing. They are then washed and processed in a state-of-the-art designed machine that turns the carob pods into small chunks of kibble. The seeds inside the fibrous pods are separated out. When the kibble is sufficiently dried it can be milled, either raw or roasted, into a powder. The Australian Carob Co. is the largest commercial organic carob processor in Australia and produces a range of USDA Organic, non-GMO consumer products including carob syrup, raw and roasted powder, and raw kibble nibbles. The facility ONLY processes carob, which eliminates cross-contamination and produces allergy-free products. New Generation Carob.
