If there is one superfood that could dethrone the hype of acai, it is Baobab. Baobab fruit powder is Africa’s own superfood from the baobab tree, which is Africa’s ‘Tree of Life’. Baobab dries on the branch and produces a powder that can be used as a health supplement and as a food ingredient. Baobab powder can help restore skin complexion, heal damage, improve elasticity and fight aging. It is naturally rich in vitamin A, C, D, E and F, plus fatty acids, minerals and B complex.

Baobab powder has a slightly sweet and sour taste if you eat it alone, but when you mix it with other ingredients, its taste fades to the background. This gives it ultimate versatility, you can include it in nearly every kind of dish. It can be added to any juices, desserts, breakfast foods, lunch or dinner.

The antioxidant value of baobab is about 40% higher than acai. It also has more than six times the vitamin C of oranges, double the calcium of milk and it is high in potassium and phosphorous. It is rich in soluble fibre, which is very beneficial, although eating too much of it can cause a laxative effect.

Baobab is among the new superfoods from AGT Foods, alongside Maca root, Cacao powder and nibs, Camu Camu powder, black quinoa, hemp hearts and pearl couscous. AGT processes and distributes seeds, grains, pulses, flours and spices for the food industry throughout South Africa. The company uses only clean ingredients, which are wholesome, environmentally friendly and non-GMO.
