Description

Organic Baobab Powder is a powdered African fruit.

Organic Baobab powder is a particularly nutrient dense powder which is ground down from the low-sugar fruit of the baobab tree.  This special tree is central to the African culture and they refer to it as the ‘tree of life’.  Baobab trees are grown in families or communities not in farming plantations which makes this fruit even more special.

The fresh fruit dries on the branch of this deciduous tree before it is ground down into a fine off white/peach coloured powder.  The powder has a sweet/sour citrus-like flavour and tastes much more palatable than most health powders you come across.

Baobab has an impressive antioxidant status due to its high levels of Vitamin C and polyphenols – it boasts an impressive  ORAC rating of 140,000 μ mol TE/100g ORAC units (oxygen radical absorbance capacity).

Our organic baobab powder contains a wide range of important nutrients including vitamins, mineral and amino acids.  This nutrient dense fruit powder is non-GMO, raw, vegan and completely natural.  It’s good levels of calcium and iron make it a useful addition to vegetarian and vegan diets.

Daily serving suggestion: 5-10g of Fruit Pulp per day per person (1 tsp = 2g).  Baobab has no known contraindications.
