How can I store carob?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine
Carob powder is available at most health food and whole food grocery stores and in the natural food section of many supermarkets. Stored in an airtight opaque container in a cool, dry, dark place as you would cocoa powder, carob powder will keep for up to twelve months.

Carob is also available in drops, bars, cookies, brownie and cake mixes, and a variety of confections, including frozen desserts. Store as you would store comparable products containing chocolate.

Should whole carob pods be available, choose glossy, dark brown pods, checking carefully for cracks or pits, which could signal infestation, or a musty smell, indicating mold.
