The taste of all of our products is taking the world by surprise.  Never before has carob been grown and produced in the way our farmer does; we invite you to compare the different carob products available and if you seriously consider no difference in taste and quality, we will fully refund your money, no questions asked. Read about our raw carob here.  Never before have such premium ingredients been combined to emulate and dramatically improve the time-honoured, traditional Turkish recipe of tahini-pekmez.

We constantly receive excellent feedback, at shows and in calls and emails from our growing fanbase.

In a government funded focus group, all of our spreads scored higher than Marmite in ‘overall like-ability’ and higher than nut butter in nearly every category.

The study was carried out by the Centre for Food Innovation at Sheffield Business School and was funded by an Innovation Voucher from the Technology Strategy Board.

Some basic health facts about ingredients.

Carob is a good carbohydrate and natural energy source.  It contains riboflavin, calcium, potassium, copper and manganese, and is high in insoluble dietary fibre. It has less fat than cocoa and three times more calcium than milk. It has no caffeine and no theobromine, so has no addictive qualities (unlike chocolate)  See our dedicated carob page.

Sesame is a good source of health and hand full of sesame a day provides enough recommended levels of phenolic anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins and protein.  Sesame is a main source of clinically important lignans which exhibit antihypertensive and anticancerous activities.
