Baobab Fruit Powder is sustainably harvested from wild Baobabs. After the seeds are removed, the fruit is frozen at very low temperatures (around -35°C) and then sealed in a vacuum chamber where the moisture is pulled from the fruit. This preserves the nutrients better than sun-drying or drying in an air tunnel environment because the nutrients are exposed to less oxygen.

Antioxidant power is measured using something called Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC). Baobab fruit powder has one of the highest ORAC values in the world at 140,000 μ mol TE/100g.

Baobabs are the largest succulent variety in the world.

Other common names for baobab include: Muvhuyu (Tshivenda); Shimuwu (isiTsonga); Isimuhu, Umshimulu (isiZulu); Mowana (Setswana); Moyo (Northern Sotho).

Some of the oldest baobab specimens in South Africa have been dated to be more than six thousand years old.

Climate change represents a very real threat to the continuation of baobabs. They are very particular about germination conditions… Non-profit organisations like the Baobab Foundation are working with communities to ensure that our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to enjoy the shade of these beautiful plants.
