What is ECO powder?

caromax ECO powder has been made using ecologically grown carob pods in the south of Spain. Its high content in dietary fiber and low content in fat makes it a healthy product that can be used in a wide range of application of the food industry. caromax ECO powder can be used in bakery or confectionery products, like a chocolate substitute, flavour and aroma or natural colouring.

Natural Occurrence

The carob tree is a native to the Mediterranean region. It is a species of a flowering evergreen shrub or tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. Its pods have been used for ages, and it has a content of d-pinitol. d-pinitol is converted to d-chiro-inositol (DCI) in our body.

Physiological Activity

Antioxidative Perspectives

Antioxidants play an essential role in protecting the human body against oxidative processes. Most insoluble dietary fibers show little antioxidative activity — or none at all. Initial in vitro studies have demonstrated that caromax fiber works as an efficient scavenger against free radicals and other reactive substances.

Digestive Perspectives

caromax possesses a high content of insoluble dietary fiber and is especially rich in lignin. Its physiological properties (water-holding capacity and resistance to human digestive enzymes) contribute to an improved intestinal motility and bowel function.

A natural solution for healthy food

Carob powder is an excellent substitute for cocoa and chocolate because it contains in its composition the theobromine, which presents side effects like headache, inappetence or allergies.
