Baobab is one of the newest fruits on the superfood scene. As soon as we heard about it we knew we had to get our hands on it, and introduce it to our grazers!
The baobab fruit grows in the African savannah of Malawi on the Adansonia tree, also known as the Tree of Life (home to Rafiki in the Lion King).
It’s the only fruit that dries naturally on the branch - cooked by the hot desert sun. To turn the harvested fruit into baobab powder, all that’s left to do is clean and sieve it!
Our baobab powder is raw, with absolutely nothing else added. It has a natural tang and sweetness, and tastes exactly like nature’s sherbert!
Baobab is high in dietary fibre and a natural source of potassium.
The caramel citrus flavours pair nicely with coconut, mango and other tropical fruit, making it a great way to add a nutrition hit to your morning smoothie!
Try using your baobab powder to supercharge your morning smoothie, or as a fruity natural sweetener for yoghurt or homemade ice cream. It goes perfectly with other tropical fruity flavours, so start experimenting!
Our taste experts took on the challenge and got busy in the kitchen, coming up with our brand new baobab & raspberry clusters.
Crunchy clusters of baobab & raspberry coated coconut crisps, mixed with soft apple pieces and pure pumpkin seeds for a super source of copper.
