Welcome to the Organic Baobab Fruit information site. The Baobab fruit is a superfruit that comes from Africa…I know, right about now your finger is on the X button about to close this blog. You have heard it all before, some magically superfruit from Africa that cures all evils. But wait, don’t close us yet, Baobab fruit is actually different…
Baobab Fruit, The Superfruit That Is Super In Other Ways
Yes, Organic Baobab Fruit is packed with nutrients. Here is the quick rundown -
- Contains six times as much vitamin C as oranges
- Contains twice as much calcium as milk
- Baobab Fruit is packed with B vitamins
- Excellent source of magnesium, iron, phosphorous, and antioxidants
So, yes, Baobab fruit has a great nutritional profile. However, what really makes Baobab super if the social good it is doing in Africa. Organic Baobab fruit has become an economic boom for growers in Africa (learn more here). A number of social programs have been created that give back to the women in Africa who are doing the growing.
The Baobab Tree or The Tree of Life
Baobab fruit grows on the Baobab tree…well, that certainly seems obvious. Okay, if you want to get technical about it, the scientific name of the tree is Adansonia Digitata. I know, I can’t pronounce that either, so I go with some common names for the tree, like The Tree of Life, The Upside Down Tree or the Monkey Bread Tree.
It is important to understand that Baobab is not some flash in the pan superfruit of the month. In fact, most Baobab trees are 200-500 years old. This is one of the reasons the trees are called the Tree of Life - they have been growing in Africa forever.
