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.
