The baobab tree primarily grows naturally throughout semi-arid tropical Africa, but has also been successfully introduced to other regions, including Madagascar and India.
Commonly referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’, a use for almost every part of the tree has been recorded. However, the pulp of the baobab fruit is the most important resource.
Fruit pods are between 20 and 30 cm long, and typically yellow-green in colour when immature. Harvesting takes place when mature fruits are brown, hard, and woody, and appear dry and hollow. The pods contain numerous seeds set within the pale, dry fruit pulp. The pulp is then milled to produce a fine powder, and bagged.
Baobab contains 50% fibre, probiotics, antioxidants, and calcium. Baobab powder has a subtle tangy citrus flavour. The combination of citrus and powder-like texture make it a little reminiscent of sherbet – but without the added sugar.
Dosage : 1-3tsp a day.
Sprinkle onto cereals, porridge or add into a smoothie or juice.
