Functional profile Nutritional composition Carob bean Bioactive compounds


Background: Carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.) is a nutritious and medicinal evergreen crop of the Leguminosae family, cultivated in Mediterranean regions of West Asia and North Africa. Although its sustaining worth has been recognized for prosperity, its therapeutic characteristics have only recently been investigated, regardless of that some of those facts have been employed in ancestral remedies for generations

Purpose: To study the different functional and therapeutic role of carob beans and its utilization in the food products

Conclusions: Carob products are high in fibre, carbohydrates, and beneficial components such as polyphenols and D-Pinitol. Because of their anti-hyperglycaemic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, bioactive chemicals found in carob fruit and its derivatives help treat a variety of health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, and gastrointestinal disorders. The current review focuses on functional properties of carob beans and its potential in generating a wide range of health-beneficial food and formulations
