Concerns over Raw Carob?

On this raw journey, I first found raw cocoa and went nuts - way too much, and did some research about the benefits and some of the health concerns. The raw community seem to be divided on the issue. Some call it poison, some call it an elixir of life.

So, I gave up raw cocoa and switched to raw carob. Now I found this...

Is it really that bad?


  • Ya. Actually, you are bang on, lulushka8.

    Thanks for that reality check. :)

  • rAWngish teechr: Yes, I noticed the webpage the other day myself. I'm not sure, but it kind of makes sense. If carob is toxic, then perhaps mesquite meal (also a legume) would be as well. However, I've never noticed a toxic effect from either. :)
