Micro Plant Powder
Our Chocolate Micro Plant Powder is gluten free, anti-inflammatory and is a natural healthy alternative to chocolate while detoxifying the body. Carob powder comes from the pod of the carob bean. Carob beans grow on trees that are part of the legume family. The trees can live up to 100 years and do not bear fruit for the first 15 years, but after that they bear fruit prolifically. Carob is a tropical pod that contains a sweet, edible pulp and inedible seeds. After drying, the pulp is roasted and ground into a powder that resembles cocoa powder, but does not have the same flavor and texture of chocolate. Ancient Egyptians used the gummy properties of carob seed by using it as an adhesive in binding mummies and the pods and seeds have been found in Egyptian tombs. The Romans are said to have eaten the pods when green and fresh for their natural sweetness. Many scholars believe that John the Baptist lived on carob pods as “the locust bean” in another name for carob. Another biblical reference to carob pods is also probable in the parable of the prodigal son who squandered his inheritance and so became a servant, looking after the pigs. “He would gladly have fed on the pods that the swine ate …”- the pods would most probably have been the pods of the carob trees which would still produce crops in times of drought and famine. Carob has rightly been coined the healthy alternative to chocolate. Carob is so different nutritionally and chemically from chocolate that people allergic to chocolate can enjoy carob. A 1973 university study clearly indicated that children who were allergic to chocolate could safely consume carob. Carob is free from phenylethylamine which can trigger migraines and allergic reactions. Carob is free from caffeine and theobromine which can be addictive and can cause allergies. Caffeine and theobromine are stimulants. Caffeine is the most active and works directly on the brain stimulating the senses, inspiration and alertness. Carob is known for its medicinal properties. The main constituents of carob are large carbohydrates (sugars) and tannins. The sugars make carob gummy and able to act as a thickener to absorb water and help bind together watery stools. Tannins from carob, being water insoluble, do not bind proteins as some do. Carob tannins do bind to (and thereby inactivate) toxins and inhibit growth of bacteria, both of which are beneficial when it comes to diarrhea. “The pectin and lignin in carob not only regulate digestion, they combine with harmful elements (even radioactive fallout) in digested food and carry them safely out of the body.” Carob is an incredibly rich food source, and it is perhaps the ideal “survival food” since it lasts a long time, requires no special storage conditions and can be eaten with no preparation. Carob is up to 8% protein and contains vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D. It is also high in calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium and contains iron, manganese, barium, copper and nickel. Carob contains no oxalic acid which tends to interfere with the body’s ability to assimilate calcium. One tablespoon of unsweetened carob powder has 25 calories, no fat, no saturated fat, no cholesterol, and 6 grams carbohydrate. It is also naturally sweet, so carob products will generally contain substantially less sugar than their chocolate counterparts. Carob also contains three times more calcium as cocoa powder. Carob powder can be substituted for cocoa powder in any recipe.

I recently discovered the carob-chocolate micro plant powder and now it is one of my favorites! It tastes great just mixed with water and adding ice and it always makes me feel great! Often I add a teaspoon of whey protein powder (chocolate, of course) to make it a light sustaining drink when I want to pass on a meal and fast but will often just take it like it is, stir, add ice, and take it on the go! There are so many benefits with cleansing and adding the dense nutrient benefit of carob and MPP. Thanks Hemp USA!!!
Had the opportunity to try the chocolate and do recommend it as well as the normal one.
I bought this cause it was on sale so I figured I would try it. It smells and tastes great. Everything that HempUSA sells is well worth checking out.

340 gram container = approx. 12 ounces and should last about 40 days for an adult and about 80 days for children when used as recommended.
Can I take Hemp Protein Powder and Micro Plant Powder together?
Definitely! In fact, we recommend them to everyone, along with Hemp Oil, for full body support.
Can I use more than one Micro Plant Powder?
Absolutely and many customers take a variety of Micro Plant Powders. The base ingredient is the same, so you would combine or alternate the servings; taking up to a TBSP- 3 times a day, combined, for max benefits.
What is the best way to take Micro Plant Powder?
We suggest taking the Micro Plant Powder with whatever your palette prefers, although it is best not to add too many sugary drinks. Many customers add Micro Plant Powder to water. If you do not like the taste, just prepare a smaller serving size (i.e. half a glass of water and a dash of juice, or almond milk with carob powder) and as always drink plenty of water throughout the day.
