Organic Baobab Powder (Superior Grade, South African Super Fruit)
Organic Baobab Powder
Organic Baobab powder is obtained from the Baobab fruit which can be found even in the driest and most remote parts of the earth. Termed as the fruit of Africa’s ‘Tree of Life’, it is one of its kind since it is the only one that has the ability to dry naturally on the tree branch while still remaining useful. It is able to thrive in the harsh Sub-Saharan climate present in most countries in the African continent. The climate in the African savannah grasslands is quite dry and very few forms of vegetative life can survive such.
To obtain the powder, the baobab fruits are dried by exposing them to sunlight for about 6 months after which the green, prickly, velvet-like coating transforms into a smooth, brown, hard shell. The sapless beige pulp is extracted from the outer casing using mechanical means and it has zero moisture. Baobab is unique in its own way since it has an innate service life of 3 years hence zero additives/preservatives are incorporated into the final baobab fruit pulp powder. The latter has a pleasant tasty aroma which resembles that of citrus fruits. The powder also has about 50% fiber and contains quite a large number of antioxidants. Baobab contains both soluble and insoluble fiber both of which are beneficial to the body in different measure. In comparison to all other fruits, it has the most dominant amount of antioxidants. The fine Baobab powder is is a mash up of fiber and a couple of antioxidants.
