COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?

Unlike many superfood powders, Baobest baobab fruit powder has a versatile and delicious flavor. Complementing both sweet and savory palates with the tangy-citrusy taste and a tartness that provides a pleasant mouthfeel.

Baobab fruit pulp is naturally dehydrated. The fruit is gathered, cracked open and the dried pulp is simply milled and sieved into a fine powder ready to use in modern applications without the need for any intensive processing or freeze drying.

There is no reported risk of consuming baobab fruit powder for pregnant women. No toxic antinutrients have been measured in the fruit pulp and any antinutrients present are far below harmful levels. In fact, it is recommended that pregnant women increase their vitamin C intake by 10 mg a day and by 30 mg a day during lactation. Baobest baobab fruit powder is naturally rich in vitamin C which is more easily absorbed by the body than manufactured vitamin supplements. As it is minimally processed, Baobest powder is a whole fruit source of multiple vitamins and minerals with the added bonus of tasting great in an extremely versatile form.
WHAT IS IT’S SHELF LIFE?

Baobest baobab fruit powder alone has a shelf life of 3 years when sealed and stored correctly. When included as a food ingredient, baobab fruit powder can aid in extending the shelf life of various products due to the high acidity and impressive antioxidant content.

The recommended daily intake of baobab fruit powder varies depending on the source, but a common recommendation is between 1 to 3 tablespoons (10 g) per day. This amount can provide a significant portion of your daily vitamin C needs, along with other nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals. The versatility of powder form makes it easy to add to your daily routine.

Here are some key points to consider:

1. Vitamin C Content: Baobab fruit powder is exceptionally high in vitamin C. One tablespoon (approximately 10 g) can provide around 33% to 50% of the daily recommended intake for an adult.

2. Fiber: It is also rich in dietary fiber, which can aid digestion and support gut health. One tablespoon can contain around 4 to 5 g of fiber.

3. General Nutrient Boost: Besides vitamin C and fiber, baobab powder also provides other vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants.

When adding baobab fruit powder to your diet, it’s best to start with a smaller amount, such as 1 teaspoon per day, to see how your body responds, and then gradually increase to 1 to 2 tablespoons per day. Just like any fruit, however, its really up to you how much you consume. There’s no risk of having too much baobab as any excess vitamin C will simply pass through the body.

It is well known that baobab fruit is relatively heat stable, meaning it retains it’s impressive nutrient profile after undergoing heat treatment. It is traditionally used for baking in Africa and is known as a good raising and gelling agent. Recently, a number of studies have investigated baobab fruit powder as an alternative ingredient in baking breads or cakes and have reported increased macro and micro- nutrient content in the final food product compared to the control (without baobab). The only concern when cooking is that vitamin C is susceptible to heat, therefore, exposing baobab to heat (over 70°C) may reduce its vitamin C content.
