What is Baobab (Bay - Oh - Bab) Powder?

Baobab powder is made from the baobab fruit which grows on the baobab tree. The baobab tree is one of the largest trees in the world that’s native to Madagascar and often referred to as the "Tree Of Life". Its leaves, bark, roots, fruit and seeds have all been harnessed for generations, either as a valuable source of food or as a traditional medicine.

Some baobab trees are estimated to be between 5000 and 6000 years old. Pollinated by fruit bats, the baobab tree produces the baobab fruit, which possess contents of a velvety smooth skin containing a soft, white, powdery pulp and kidney shaped seeds.

When the baobab fruit is harvested, the hard outer shell of the fruit is cracked open and the contents are removed. The seeds are then separated from the fibrous material and mesocarp. This is screened to remove further unwanted fibrous and flaky material, leaving a fine powder. Finally, the food grade powder is milled and packaged.

The baobab fruit is considered rich in nutrients, it is often referred to as the ‘King of Super Fruits.’ It is also incredibly unique, because unlike most other fruit, the green, coconut-sized baobab fruit dries naturally on its own branches before harvesting.

This helps to ensure that the fruit’s kidney shaped seeds, which are ground into the organic baobab powder that we now know and love, are able to retain an optimum number of beneficial nutrients, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and C, the minerals calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and molybdenum, as well as dietary fibre.

This raw and organic baobab powder is dried and processed at low temperatures in order to preserve an optimal number of its naturally occurring nutrients.

    Robert | 4/9/14

    The service, delivery and packaging are only surpassed by the products themselves! This is the second product I have bought from detoxyourworld, and at first was concerned about prices. But you really do get quality across the board.
    If I stop using this amazing powder, which I add to my green smoothies, couple of teaspoons at a time, I do feel more sluggish, it has become noticeable. How much is due to Baobab powder I can only share from my experiences.
