FoodTech start-up CarobWay is set to bring the ancient carob fruit to the modern table at Vitafoods 2023.
The company's portfolio of bioactive ingredients is based on whole carob fruit for well-being. CarobWay runs a vertically integrated operation from field to fork and commits to fair-trade practices while ensuring a stable supply chain.
Eliminating waste and preserving all the goodness of carob, Carobway uses the entire fruit—seeds and pulp—to create innovative ingredients for food, food supplements, and cosmetics, backed by science.
One formulation under development is a prebiotic powder enriched with fibres and polyphenols that possess anti-inflammatory properties and support a healthy gut microbiome. Following bioavailability and bio-accessibility studies, the start-up will advance a series of microbiome studies to explore the effect of its prebiotic on human microbiota diversity and specific microbes.
CarobWay creates a clean-label, natural sweetener with a low glycemic index. This single ingredient replaces sugar as a one-to-one drop-in.
Stop by the CarobWay booth and taste fresh carob-sweetened iced tea, chocolate gummy bears and confectionery fortified with prebiotic carob powder. Visitors are welcome to try a pure carob-infused face cream with anti-ageing effect.
