As our regular readers know, we are big believers in the Baobab Fruit. There is so much positive going on with this fruit from Africa. You have the incredible nutritionals which we document in our article on Baobab Health Benefits. You also have the very positive social story with the Baobab Fruit. When you purchase Fairly Traded Baobab Fruit, you are helping the communities in Malawi have a better life. Money is used to build schools and better the community.
The above is true with Baobab Fruit products in general, but then when you look at a specific brand like the Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder you get into even more great reasons to try the Baobab Fruit. For each bottle of Limitless Baobab sold, Limitless Good donates money to provide 8 meals to people in need. Clearly we are big fans of the Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder.
We Knew Baobab Fruit Was Great, But a Great Toy As Well?
We got a great kick out of watching this video review of the Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder done by DadDoesBlog on YouTube -
We love when companies factor some fun and humor into their product reviews. One point we do want to second from that video – it really is easy to mix Baobab in pretty much any drink. I know some people have used “green supplements” which tend to clump up in water and really do not mix well. It can be a real challenge just trying to get them down.
The Limitless Baobab Fruit on the other hand mixes very well in water and really has a pleasant, but slightly sour taste to it.
Okay, watch the Baobab Fruit video, have a good laugh and we will be back soon with all new Baobab Fruit recipes.
Clearly we are big fans of the Baobab Fruit, but we have had a number of questions about how the Baobab Fruit does when turned into a powder. One of the truly unique things about the Baobab Fruit is that the Baobab Pulp naturally dehydrates inside the shell. This means you do NOT need to dry the Baobab Fruit at all to turn the Fruit Pulp into Fruit Powder.
What is The Problem With Drying A Fruit?
The problem is heat. Most fruit pulps contain a large amount of water and you need to use heat to dry out the water and make the pulp into a powder. Of course, once you expose a fruit to high heat, you start to kill off the nutrients in the fruit. So, the fact that the Baobab Fruit does NOT have to be exposed to heat to be turned into a powder is very important.
What About the Bioavailability of Baobab Powder?
The next question is… Is the Baobab Powder bioavailable? Baobab Foods has just finished doing testing at Brunswick Laboratories for bioavailability of Baobab Powder and the results are impressive. It turns out the Bioavailability of Baobab Fruit powder exceeds that of acai, pomegranate and grape seed extracts. Simply put, Raw Organic Baobab Fruit Powder is absolutely absorbed in the body and the nutrients have full impact.
So, Do All Baobab Powders Have The Same Bioavailability?
No. Our research indicates that Baobab that comes from Malawi has more nutrients that Baobab Fruit from other regions. In addition, you want to find a Baobab Powder that is Organic and processed without heat. We have been using the Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder for a number of months and find it to be fantastic.
Keep the Baobab questions coming – we love to answer them!
