What is the fat and calorie content of one ounce carob pod ?
Although this is a very straightforward question, in my practice I rarely work with calorie counting and have certainly would not know the answer to this off hand.
However...a good old fashioned google search primarily came up with the following 2 answers:
A 100 g portion of carob (approximately 3.5 oz.) provides 180 calories, 4.5 g protein, 81 g carbohydrate, 1.4 g fat, 352 mg calcium (one-third of the daily value) and 8 g dietary fiber. Carob also contains phosphorus, magnesium, vitamins A, D, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.
Nutrition for Carob
Per 100g (1 cup): 228 calories, 4.7g protein, 92g carbohydrate, .7g fat. Good source of calcium, phosphorus, Vitamins A and D, and potassium.
So...100g is approximately 3.5 oz. Which means that, as a rough estimate you can expect about 50-65 calories per ounce. Of course, all calorie counts are estimates anyways...try to focus on the quality of the food you're consuming. Carob is a whole food with many health benefits...enjoy it. :)
