Having graced the countryside since before the time of Christ, this magnificent tree has been used to sweeten foods and beverages for thousands of years. It is also referred to as St. John’s Bread throughout the Bible, connecting its importance of sustenance with the teachings of Jesus. With a lifespan of more than 100 years, the Israel’s current Carob trees are distant descendants of the plants that graced the Holy land that Jesus walked on.

Along with quercetin and myricetin, additional antioxidants, Carob can help reduce the risk of certain cancers as well as provide a safe sweetener option for diabetics.
