Baobab fruit powder derives from the African tree which is affectionately known as the ‘Tree of Life'(as depicted in The Lion King).
Its healing/remedial properties have achieved legendary status in Africa and it’s easy to see why!
Baobab fruit powder forms naturally inside the hard-shelled fruit of the tree. Inside the hard shell is a nutritious pulp which is ground into powder.
Baobab is the only fruit in the world that dries naturally on its branch which means it undergoes very little processing from the time it’s harvested to the time you open your pouch.
Baobab is extremely high in vitamin C, fibre, calcium and potassium. Potassium and magnesium are needed to support both normal muscle function and electrolyte balance. It’s also a fantastic source of vitamin c and calcium, both of which are needed to fight tiredness and fatigue as well as being very high in fibre.
Baobab is a great addidition to your smoothie, although its citrus-like taste means it’s also great for sprinkling over cereal.
