Organic Baobab powder is a nutrient dense, raw wholefood, produced from the Baobab fruit, native to South Africa. Bursting with antioxidants, high in fibre and a rich source of vitamin C it is a nutritious and delicious addition to smoothies, sprinkled over muesli or porridge or blended with yoghurt!
The Baobab tree is native to Africa and thrives in hot, dry, low-lying areas. Known as 'the upside down tree' because when the tree is bare of its leaves, the spreading branches of the Baobab resemble roots sticking up into the air, as if it had been planted upside-down!
The baobab fruit have an oval shape and are formed from white flowers, pollinated by bats. The fruit has a hard, woody shell with a velvety yellow-green coating. Inside the shell are the large oil-rich seeds, the fruit powder and fibres. The baobab fruit dries naturally on the tree and the pulp is simply crushed and sieved to produce baobab powder, maintaining all of its natural raw flavour and goodness.
