Baobab fruit powder is an astonishingly nutrient-rich super food providing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fibre and is traditionally eaten throughout Africa to boost a range of health benefits. 

Baobab powder is a nutrient-dense pulp that is extracted from baobab fruit. When the fruit are ripe the pulp inside the fruit dries out naturally, concentrating all the nutrients into a naturally formed powder. 

One of baobab’s greatest gifts is that it is one of the richest plant-based sources of calcium known, containing almost four times the amount of calcium in milk, making it an excellent source of calcium for everyone, but especially children, vegans, pregnant and post-menopausal women.

Did you know? It can take a baobab tree up to 200 years before it produces its first hard, green-brown velvety pod-shaped fruit? Baobab powder, extracted from the dried fruit pulp contains:

1# Six times as much potassium as a banana which assists in regulating blood pH, blood pressure, and conducting nerve impulse. 

2# The highest vitamin C content of any fruit, offering four times more than an orange. It also has one of the highest antioxidant ratings. 

3# Is an excellent source of magnesium containing twice as much magnesium as dark leafy greens.

4# Is an exceptionally rich source of bioavailable iron.
