About the Carob:
For all the chocoholics out there, imagine the thought of living without chocolate—the horror! Well, that’s how it feels for dogs…and we feel for them. They’ll never be able to enjoy the sweet, gooey goodness of a triple-overload chocolate chip cookie. But wait…there’s a chocolate substitute that’s perfectly safe for dogs, and it’s called carob.
You’ve probably seen carob on dog treats in fancy dog boutiques, and perhaps you stayed away from them because it looked too much like chocolate for your liking. But good news—carob is perfectly safe for dogs to eat. Let’s talk a little more about this chocolate-like alternative that’s safe for your pooch.
Why Carob instead of Chocolate?
The compound that makes chocolate toxic for dogs is called theobromine. Our human bodies are able to metabolize this compound, but your dog’s digestive system works differently. That’s because it processes it much more slowly, which allows toxic levels of theobromine to build up in your dog’s body. The health risks vary, sometimes on the amount or type of chocolate eaten. A small amount of chocolate may only give your dog an upset stomach, but in larger amounts, theobromine can lead to seizures, muscle tremors, internal bleeding, irregular heartbeat, and even heart attack or death. Dark chocolate and baking chocolate have the highest levels of theobromine, followed by milk chocolate and white chocolate.
The amazing thing about the carob is that it doesn’t contain any theobromine. On top of that, it’s also free of caffeine, formamide, or phenylethylamine, other dangerous substances found in chocolate. Carob is extracted from the carob bean that grows on the carob tree, a type of flowering shrub which belongs to the same family as peas (Fabaceae). Like cocoa beans, carob beans can be ground into a powder that can be used as-is or made into carob chips. Boasting a naturally sweet flavor, similar to chocolate, carob also contains a variety of healthy nutrients such as vitamins A, B, and D as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, and protein. If that’s not enough to get you to try this delish treat, carob is a good source of fiber and pectin (a substance that helps to flush toxins from the body).
