Have you heard of Baobab before? I recently stumbled upon the PandaVita Organic Baobab powder and was curious about it, so I decided to give it a go. Since then I learnt a little about baobab and baobab fruit powder and here I share my findings with you.
The Baobab tree
Organic Baobab Powder is derived from the magnificent Baobab trees, fondly known as the ‘upside down tree’, or the ‘Tree of Life, cultivated on organic reserves in Ghana, Africa. The tree is can also be located in Australia, Malawi, Madagascar, and Arabia.
Africans have for centuries, indulged in the outstanding health benefits of this natural product. The Baobab tree is believed to be the longest-living tree on earth, with evidence suggesting that some trees have survived for over 2000 years.
How is baobab fruit powder made?
The Baobab fruit is harvested by hand, between May and September. The powdery fruit pulp naturally dehydrates in the shell – is obtained once the hard outer shell is cracked open, a process of milling then generates both a course and fine powder.
