Organic Baobab Powder
Country of Origin:
Our organic baobab powder comes from a tree that grows in Africa, Australia, and the Middle East. Every part of the tree has traditionally been used as food, as medicine, or as the basis of clothing or household items.
Baobab powder comes from the fruit of the baobab tree, which has been revered for centuries as "the Tree of Life". Baobabs grow wild and can become massive—the largest recorded baobab tree is 98 feet tall and 36 feet in diameter! These magnificent trees live for up to 3,000 years, resiliently surviving in some of the world's harshest climates by storing water in their trunks and condensing nutrients into their leaves, bark, and fruit. Baobab fruit is a pod that contains incredibly nutrient dense powder and seeds. The powder has a mild flavor and can be consumed in many ways to take advantage of its potent health benefits.
Baobab powder has 6 times the vitamin C of an orange by weight, and provides 24% of the recommended daily amount in just one tablespoon. It contains nearly 50% fiber, 75% of which is prebiotic, making it incredibly convenient for getting more prebiotics in your diet. It also has possibly the highest calcium content of any plant food. It provides 2 times the calcium of milk, making it an ideal calcium boost for those who don't eat dairy (or anyone, really!). Using baobab powder is an easy way to get more nutrients in your diet because of its versatility. Taking your baobab powder can be as simple as mixing it with water or blending it into a smoothie, or it can be included in recipes for pancakes, breads, sauces, desserts and more. Experiment in the kitchen and boost your nutrient intake at the same time!
The baobab tree has powerful health benefits that has been undervalued until recently. By including baobab powder in your diet, you're helping bring economic value to this magnificent tree and protect biodiversity. Since baobab powder is harvested in the wild (don't worry—the trees grow abundantly and the fruit was previously going to waste!) no pesticides, chemicals or harmful farming practices are used.
