In our article on Baobab Fruit Health Benefits we discussed all the nutrients that are packed into the tiny Baobab fruit. If you have not yet read the article, give it a quick read as it will explain why we are so excited about the Baobab fruit. We will wait, go ahead, give it a read…
Back now? Pretty impressive stuff, right? Well, since writing that article on Baobab fruit we have had a number of questions on how to get Baobab fruit here in the USA, so we wanted to provide some more insight…
Fresh Baobab Fruit, Something You Just Can’t Find In The USA
Unfortunately, if you think you can go to a local fruit market and pick up a few Baobab fruits, you are mistaken. The whole Baobab fruit is generally not imported into the USA, so you need to find another form of the Baobab fruit. Luckily, you can find Baobab fruit powder here in the USA, and if processed correctly, it can have all the nutrients and health benefits of the fresh Baobab fruit.
How To Make The Best Baobab Fruit Powder
When it comes to processing any fruit – less is more! The less you need to heat it, dry it or process the fruit in anyway, the more nutrients the fruit powder will have. The cool thing about the Baobab fruit is that the pulp is already dry. So, to make Baobab powder, you simply need to remove the seeds from the pulp and then crush up the Baobab fruit pulp into a fine powder.
When shopping for Baobab fruit powder, you want to make sure no heat or processing was done to the Baobab fruit pulp. The ideal Baobab fruit powder would be 100% Organic Baobab Fruit, with nothing else added and no heat used to make the powder.
Why is Organic Important When Shopping For Baobab Fruit?
We could write a whole book just on the benefits of eating organic, but let’s just say we are big believers in eating organic fruits whenever possible. There is plenty of 100% Certified Organic Baobab Fruit Powder on the market, so why not buy Organic Baobab fruit?
Tests on Baobab Fruit Powder Are On The Way
We are big believers in science and testing, so we are currently testing the nutritional content of a number of Baobab fruit powders and will post our results soon.
