Tips For Finding The Best Baobab Fruit Powder

Over the years, we have tried pretty much every superfruit on the market.  We have had some success with the Acai Berry, but in truth we were looking for something with a more complete nutritional profile.  I believe we may have now found that ultimate SuperFruit – the Baobab Fruit.

What Makes Baobab Fruit So Special?

The Baobab Fruit has double the antioxidants of the Acai Berry, but that is just the start.  The Baobab Fruit is 50% Fiber, has 6 times the Vitamin C of oranges and more potassium and magnesium than bananas.

The Baobab Fruit actually naturally dehydrates in its shell.  This means you can get Baobab Fruit powder that has not exposed to any heat.  The Baobab Fruit pulp is left to naturally dehydrate in its shell.  Once the Baobab Fruit is dehydrated, the powdered pulp is removed, the seeds are removed and the Baobab pulp is milled into a powder.

The Baobab Fruit powder that is made in this way retains all the nutrients of the Baobab Fruit.  No heat is used to make the Baobab Powder, so the powder contains all the nutrients of the fresh Baobab fruit pulp.

Where is The Best Place to Buy Baobab Fruit Powder?

This may sound weird, but we find the best place to buy Baobab Fruit powder is on Amazon.  Yes, Amazon.Com has a wide selection of Organic Baobab Fruit products to choose from.  We like the Limitless Baobab Powder because it is 100% Certified USDA Organic.  The only ingredient in the Limitless Baobab is Baobab Powder.

One piece of advice – check the reviews on Amazon.Com.  You want to go with a Baobab Fruit powder that has 4 or 5 star reviews.  The Baobab Fruit is such a powerful SuperFruit that you really should feel an increase energy when you take it.  In addition, you should see your immune system getting stronger.  So, if you take a Baobab Powder and don’t feel anything, you are probably not taking a great Baobab Powder supplement.

Sounds Interesting, But What Are the Health Benefits of the Baobab Fruit?

While they do recommend Organic Baobab Fruit and specifically talk about Limitless Baobab, I like that the video is free of hype.  They do not get into the argument over which is the best superfood or superfruit, they simply state the potential health benefits from including Baobab in your diet.

How We Are Using Baobab Fruit Powder?

There are many different ways to use Organic Baobab Fruit powder, we tend to like to keep things simple.  The easiest approach is to mix about 6 grams of Organic Baobab Fruit Pulp powder into 12 ounces of water.  Shake and Drink!  It really does not get much easier than that.  You might want to add some honey if it is too sour for you – we tend to like the taste of straight Baobab.

The other thing we have been doing is baking with Baobab.  Baobab Brownies – Baobab Cookies – all taste great.  You can also use Baobab powder to replace gluten in  a recipe.
