100% Organic Baobab Powder - 8 oz.
Baobab fruit powder provides an easy way to sprinkle more antioxidants, fiber, Vitamin C, and prebiotics into your diet.
The powder can be added to smoothies, desserts, tomato sauce, macaroni and cheese, or really anything that can be enhanced by its slightly sweet and tangy taste.
The baobab fruit (it sort of looks like a coconut) comes from the baobab tree, which is grown throughout Africa. Also known as the “tree of life”, the massive and gnarly Baobab tree looks like it has been torn out of the ground and turned upside down. Many of the trees are hundreds to thousands of years old and are the center of a biodiverse ecosystem that has developed around them.
The cream-colored fruit pulp dries in the shell, and is removed by cracking the shell open. The seeds are removed, and the powder is finely crushed and then put through a sieve. No additional processing is necessary.
Baobab’s nutritional benefits

Minerals & Vitamins: It has potassium, magnesium, calcium, and Vitamin C. One serving of baobab powder (two tablespoons) has 25% of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C.
Prebiotic: You’ve heard of probiotics (that help add good bacteria to your gut), but just as important are prebiotics which help that good bacteria grow in your gut. The fiber in the baobab powder fruit has prebiotic properties.
