I found numerous posts since 1999 on carob but not much in the last few years. Seems that many people have asked about it but there is nothing in the last three years on point as whether carob is indeed safe as a chocolate substitute.
Our daughter has in the past (before we knew of her peanut allergy) eaten other legumes including chick peas, kidney beans, lentils without an issue but it sounds like carob could be risky (?)
I would appreciate any updates that people have on carob as a substitute for chocolate when a peanut allergy is present.
Thanks ... NP.
