WHAT IS BAOBAB FRUIT?
Known as both the King and Queen of superfruits, it is the only fruit in the world to dry naturally on the branch. It is a vegan, kosher, gluten free, 100% organic, raw superfruit. It is a massive source of nutrients, and is more bioavailable than manufactured supplements. The Baobab fruit has a delicious sweet and citrussy flavor, It is also 50% fibre and contains more nutrients than any other whole fruit in the world. So much that the FDA classifies it as a supplement.
In Africa, the baobab fruit has been used medicinally for centuries to treat everything from fevers, malaria and gastrointestinal problems to vitamin C deficiency. It is low in sodium, sugar and calories. It is high in calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin A, thiamin, B6 and bioflavonoids. It is the strongest natural prebiotic and is very high in fiber. It has significant protective effects against liver damage and is good for detoxifying. “NIH study on glycemic response and starch reduction”
Research by the FDA, NIH and other reputable institutions, including Oxford University have found numerous health benefits for the use of baobab. Among them being that it can be heated up to 400degrees and it will retain its nutrients. And adding it to flour before baking turns it into a very potent anti-inflammatory and helps regulate blood sugar. Meaning there is an open market for baked goods for diabetics and people suffering from arthritis. Which can also be enjoyed by anyone.
Baobab is a mild thickener, and when added to anything else, loses its taste and enhances the taste of whatever it was added to. It can be added to water, coffee, juice, tea, smoothies, pancake mix, cereal, soups, ice cream, yoghurt, wine, cocktails (great for hangovers)
