Purely: Learn - Baobab

Baobab Tree in the African savannah

 

Baobab

The baobab tree is known as the ‘Tree of Life’, an icon of the African savannah, and a symbol of positivity in a landscape where little else can thrive. Whilst many people know about the baobab tree, not many people know that it has a fruit- and even less know that this fruit is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world.

 

Not only does the Baobab offer a high array of nutrients, it also has a pleasant citrusy flavour making it an excellent choice to add to a wide range of foods and beverages: smoothies, juices, yoghurts, desserts, and fruit salads.

The Production

The Baobab Tree is native to Northwest Africa and produces a hard fruit which is collected from the tree and broken down. The soft and nutritious pulp is extracted from the hard pods and is milled and sifted to obtain a fine powder. The fruit pulp offers a high micronutrient profile: vitamins, trace minerals and antioxidants. Baobab powder is an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, magnesium & calcium.
