This makes carob powder useful in supporting digestive health in several ways.

Its antimicrobial compounds from tannins could also support pathogen eradication. Outside of the GI system, carob powder is very high in anti-oxidants from these tannins which render an anti-inflammatory properties that might help certain conditions like IBS or ulcers when taken regularly.
