Before we dig into this episode, I want to read a review from apple podcasts. This is by Rosie Rod. It's called ready to grow, ready to learn and grow my business.

If you like what you hear on today's episode, I invite you to head over to apple podcasts and leave a review for the show. If you happen to be watching on YouTube, like this episode, and please subscribe to my channel, if you want more of this tasty dog treat content.

In today's first episode of the carob series, let's dive into an overview of the tasty world of carob. Don't worry if what you're looking for, isn't in this episode, I've got about six other episodes to follow with specific content on carob. So you can find the episode, you're looking for, dive into it and get that great info.

What is [00:03:00] carob? How is it made? And why has it become such a sought after alternative to chocolate, in dog treats? We'll unveil the mysteries surrounding carob from its origin to flavor profile and explore the key reasons behind its popularity among dog treat enthusiasts and we're going to do this in short episodes. got a lot of different topics to cover and I found that short episodes really helped tie everything in together and you can get great nuggets of information that don't have to take a long time.

Let's talk about the carob origins. Carob comes from the pod of the Ceratonia siliqua tree that's native to the Mediterranean region. Often referred to as the carob bean, these pods contain seeds surrounded by a sweet pulp. That pulp is ground to produce carob powder or use to make carob chips.

One of the primary reasons that carob has gained popularity is its role as a safe and friendly [00:04:00] dog treat chocolate alternative. Unlike chocolate, carob lacks theobromine. That's the compound that can be toxic to dogs. It's really toxic to dogs and pretty much we all know that of the list of food not to give dogs, chocolate is right up there. This makes carob a sweet solution for pet owners looking to treat their furry friends without the associated risks of chocolate.

Let's talk about the flavor profile of carob. Carob has a naturally sweet and mild flavor with notes of caramel and honey, I'm getting hungry already. This is not just good for dogs, it's delicious for humans. If you've never tried carob chips, I encourage you. Please try them. They're absolutely delicious. It's taste is often compared to chocolate, although it lacks the bitterness found in cocoa. This pleasant sweetness makes carob a delightful addition to dog treats providing a tasty experience for canine [00:05:00] taste buds. And there's a lot of combinations you can do with carob.

A popular one that I used to do for a dog that would come in and only there, they only wanted something carob. One of the most popular things I made was my fat Elvis donut and the fat Elvis donut was a banana applesauce donut, with a peanut butter glaze and I did dehydrated banana chips on top with a carob drizzle. Oh, my gosh, it looked good enough to eat. It looked spectacular and this was this dog's particular favorite, Marlow. Anyway carob is something that I try to carry and that's the doughnut that really did it for me.

Beyond being a safe alternative, carob also offers health benefits. It contains fiber which can aid in digestion and it's rich in polyphenols. And if you know what polyphenols are, you know it's an antioxidant known for its potential to combat oxidative stress and inflammation. That's kind of [00:06:00] cool because that can work for dogs too. While carob is not a substitute for a balanced diet, obviously, carob does add a wholesome touch to your pup's treats.

Carob chips also bring more than just flavor to the table. They can enhance the texture of dog treats, providing a delightful crunch or chewiness. The textural element adds to the overall enjoyment of the treats, making them not only safe, but also satisfying for your furry companions. You'll have some customers that will walk in if you have carob chips on your cookie or even a glaze made with carob powder or carob chips, and they'll say, Hmm. Is that safe for dogs? The information you're going to find in this series will educate you to know exactly what to tell them. It is safe for dogs. Absolutely.

Carob is also very versatile, whether you're baking cookies or biscuits, or even pup friendly cakes. Carob chips seamlessly integrate into a variety of dog recipes. [00:07:00] Same with carob powder. This versatility allows bakers to get creative and it provides a wide range of treats that cater to different tastes and preferences.

So there's a whole range of things you can do with carob chips and carob powder. I can't wait to get into it and explore this whole thing with you. Stay with me as we move into the next segment where we will explore how carob chips and carob powder is made.

Carob chips are made from the dried and roasted carob pods of the Ceratonia siliqua tree. This process involves several steps. First is harvesting. The cocoa pods are harvested once they ripened on the carob tree. The pods are typically brown and have a sweet pulp surrounding the seeds. That's right. Carob is naturally sweet. Then they're dried. The harvested pods are dried to remove the moisture content. And this can be done naturally by exposing them to the sun or using specialized drying [00:08:00] equipment. Probably dehydrators right?

Once dried the carob pods are roasted to develop their characteristic flavor. Roasting enhances the natural sweetness and imparts or rich caramel like taste to the carob. Interestingly enough, roasting carob pods is a lot like roasting coffee beans. You'll find light roast carob, medium roast carob, dark roast carob, all those differ in shades.

If you're using carob as a colorant to tint to your frosting. You can get a nice variety of shades. Also flavor, it affects the flavor profile, just like a coffee bean. I find that pretty interesting.

After roasting, the seeds are removed from the carob pods and the seeds are usually not used in making carob chips. That's a little bit different from coffee. Cause we use the bean, we roast the bean, we grind the bean, right? And we mix with water and we have coffee. With carob, the pods are used and the beans are discarded.

[00:09:00] The remaining pulp of the carob pods is ground into a fine powder, which is the raw material for making carob chips. That carob powder can be used as is, or it can be further processed into carob chips.

Carob powder is often combined with fats, such as Palm kernel oil, or other fats, to create a mixture that can be molded and solidified into a chip or a chip like shape. The carob, the fat mixture is molded into chip shapes, and then it's allowed to solidify. The molds are then cooled to ensure that the carob chips maintain their desired form.

Now, because they're mixed with this fat and then solidified, this means that for carob chips, when they get warm, they're also going to melt. So if you have used carob chips and you've used them in your treats, like maybe an icing or a glaze or something like that, and you've had to vend in the hot summer heat. [00:10:00] You'll notice that your your carob chips do melt. Which is why I really like working with carob powder over carob chips if I'm going to make any glaze or any icing.

You guys stay tuned. There will be recipes in this series and I will give you a carob icing that does not melt. It's fantastic. I cannot wait to share it with you. More on that later.

So after the carob chips, we're just going to get back to how carob is made. After there, the chips are solidified the carob chips are then packaged and ready for your use. They can be incorporated into various recipes, including dog treats or even human treats it. Guys, if you have not tasted carob chips, they're amazing. They're absolutely delicious. And they are a safe and dog friendly, alternative to chocolate.

Carob chips, as we have learned offer a magical combination of safety, sweetness, and versatility for dog treat enthusiasts. Understanding the origin and flavor [00:11:00] profile of carob enhances our appreciation for this delightful alternative to chocolate.

Join me next time as we explore the delicate balance between flavor, nutrition and the potential health benefits or concerns when it comes to carob chips.
