Antioxidants: With an ORAC value of 333.33 μmol TE/g (per100g), our baobab fruit powder has an antioxidant level more than double that of goji berries, and more than six times that of cranberries, blueberries and blackberries.
Calcium: Our baobab powder contains over 250mg/g of calcium, vital for building and maintaining healthy bones. That means baobab contains more calcium than milk and may make it the richest-known plant source of this mineral. This is of particular interest to makers of products for vegetarians and vegans.
Iron: Recent surveys have found that many of us – including a majority of women – do not consume enough iron. Our baobab powder is a rich source of iron containing 3.6mg/100g – more than many other foods traditionally recommended for their iron content such as red meat, spinach and lentils.
Potassium: Our baobab powder contains 2120mg/100g of potassium. That is almost six times higher than banana, frequently recommended by nutritionists for its potassium content. Potassium is important for many aspects of health including the nervous system and muscle function. Since potassium loss can occur through sweating, baobab’s high potassium content may be of particular interest to makers of sports and fitness products.
Magnesium: At 144.5mg/g, our baobab powder is a rich natural source of magnesium, a mineral that has been linked to bone health, heart health and lowering of high blood pressure.
When using baobab powder it is rare to have any side effects.

The African Baobab Adansonia digitata, is a native deciduous tree from the African savannahs. Found in 31 African countries where the climate is dry, hot and uninhabitable for most plants and people, the baobab stands to become one of the largest living things in the world (Pakenham, 2004), symbolizing the African Savannah more than any other plant. Baobabs tend to live for approximately 500 years, although some are thought to be 5000 years old. Also known as the ‘Upside down tree’ the African myth is when God made the world he gave each animal a tree. The Baobab was given to the hyena, who threw it down in disgust - With the tree landing upside down, resulting in its impressive shape (Pakenham, 2004). The baobab is widely spread over the African savanna through natural re-production and harvesting the fruit does not affect the species (Gruenwald et al, 2005).
