There’s a lot more to good nutrition than just making sure you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals.

Magnesium plays a significant role in the prevention of diabetes and osteoporosis as well as a host of other conditions such as hypertension, chronic fatigue and insomnia. Baobab powder is an excellent source of magnesium as it contains twice as much magnesium as dark leafy greens.
Potassium is both a mineral and an electrolyte. As a mineral it works towards maintaining healthy muscle function including the heart. As an electrolyte, it assists with conducting nerve impulses and is important for kidney health, helping to regulate the amount of water in your body, the blood pH levels, working closely with sodium to manage blood pressure. Baobab powder is an excellent source of potassium containing 6 times as much potassium as bananas.

How we make our baobab powder
Baobab powder is the ‘pulp’ of baobab fruit. It holds the seeds in the fruit, much like the white of an apple. Baobab powder is naturally dry, not moist like apple pulp. This makes it easy to extract and package. EcoProducts baobab powder has not undergone any further refinement or processing and has no additives. We are proud to say that our powder is 100% pure.
The fruit mature during the dry season and drop off the trees when ready to harvest. People living in rural areas collect the fruit from under the trees. The fruit are transported to our processing facility. Here the fruit are cracked open and the inside powder and seed is removed. The powder is then sieved twice. The first sieving is to separate out the seeds. The second uses a very fine sieve to remove fibres. The fine creamy-coloured powder is then ready to be packed.
