How we make our baobab powder

Baobab powder is the ‘pulp’ of baobab fruit. It holds the seeds in the fruit, much like the white of an apple. Baobab powder is naturally dry which makes it easy to extract and package. 

The fruit mature during the dry season and drop off the trees when ready to harvest.  People living in rural areas collect the fruit from under the trees. The fruit are transported to our processing facility. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here the fruit are cracked open and the inside powder and seed is removed. The powder is then tumbled and sieved twice. The first sieving is to separate out the seeds.  The second uses a very fine sieve to remove fibres.  The fine creamy-coloured powder is then ready to be packed.

Baobab powder is a super fruit. It is eaten to boost health and vitality. The powder can be used as a health supplement and as a food ingredient. It is rich in vitamin C, calcium and magnesium. Baobab powder is an antioxidant and has prebiotic properties. It is a natural source of dietary fibres, minerals and organic acids.
