Carob Syrup

Carob has been used for over 5000 years. Its name comes from the Arabic Kharrub or Kharoub, meaning pod or bean pod. The Greek word for carob is keras, meaning horn, in reference to its arc shaped pods. It is also known as "St. John's Bread" and, according to the Bible, sustained St. John the Baptist in the wilderness. The Romans called carob pods the Egyptian fig or date, and enjoyed the naturally sweet fruit when green and juicy. Ancient Egyptians used carob to make the resinous adhesive used in mummification, and both the pods and seeds have been found in Egyptian tombs. Today carob is still eaten in Egypt as a sweetmeat and to make sweet beverages.

Carob also has excellent nutritional value. Along with up to 80% protien, it contains Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium Manganese, Barium, Copper, Nickel and the vitamins A, B, B2, B3, and D. It calcium contend is 3 times more than milk or chocolate; with less calories and 17 times less fat. Carob syrup is valued for having a chocolate like flavour. Yet unlike chocolate, carob is free of caffeine and a healthy alternative for those who are sensitive to or wish to avoid chocolate.

carob improves digestion and lowers cholesterol level in the blood, since it does not contain caffeine, carob benefits people with high blood pressure, Carob is rich in tannins that have an astringent or binding effect on the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract. In 2002, a study at the Potsdam University in Germany indicated that carob fiber could reduce LDL cholesterol in men and women within six weeks. It may be useful for those with lung disorders. No preservatives, no sugar added.

Non-GMO Policy
Genetic Modification of crops is a process of adding genes from other species eg bacteria into plants so that they can produce more yield and be resistant to attack from pests. Insects that take GMO crops die due to the toxins that the GMO plants secrete. The safety to humans is still not conclusive and we are concerned.

Hence, Nature's Glory abides by a non GMO policy when we select our products. Hence, we shy away from products made in the USA including fresh produce unless they are tested for non GMO. (These tests may still be insufficient due to the uncontrolled spread of GMO pollen). The introduction of GMOs in Europe had caused half the bee population to go extinct and hence it was banned in Europe. GMOs are also banned in Japan, NZ and Australia. There have also been an increase in the amount of pesticide and chemicals used on crops after the introduction GMOs. The large increase in chemicals on crops has now become a global threat to our environment
24/7 cool storage
We use advanced climate control systems to keep the organic products in good condition, without using chemicals or preservatives.
No Fumigation
Chemical fumigation quickly kills pests and insects that attack stored food, and are commonly done in most food warehouses. (some fumigated as many as 7-10 times a year!) Fumigation leaves chemical residues on the products which may not be good for health in the long term. Our NASAA audited warehouses are never fumigated even in the event of infestation to keep our food safe. Our cold trucks are also not fumigated for the same reason. Besides keeping our products in a cold, dry environment to reduce such pests, we painstakingly remove any insects found by hand sieving. (These pests are common in organic fields as they are also not sprayed with pesticides.)
Microwave Free
Many foods are irradiated with microwave or high energy pulses to pasteurize and extend the shelf life. We do not do this as these high energy waves do potentially destroy the nutrients of the foods and it's enzymes. We believe that food must have "life" or enzymes and should not be overly processed. This is why our products do not have a long shelf life... but may help extend your life!
Radiation Tested
In recent events of radiation disaster and nuclear arms used in previous wars, the threat of nuclear energy cannot be taken lightly. This is why we have stopped imports from radiation affected areas. However, with the air passages and water currents constantly moving the contamination from one area to another, one can never be sure if the source even from a distant country is safe. This is why Nature's Glory has set out to test every batch of products imported from Japan and USA to ensure that they are not contaminated before they are put for sale. These tests will extend to products from other countries as well.
