Carob extract is used for diarrhea, diabetes, prediabetes, persistent heartburn, obesity, athletic performance, and high cholesterol, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.In foods and beverages, carob is used as a flavoring agent and as a chocolate substitute. Carob powder and extracts are also used as ingredients in food products.
