This fizzy, citrusy powder tastes like sherbet, but without the sugar. It’ll wake up your tastebuds and leave your mouth feeling fresh and zingy.
Baobab fruit powder comes from the fruit pods of the baobab tree, which is also known as ‘The Tree of Life.’ It’s the national tree of both Senegal and Madagascar and can live for a very long time – the oldest recorded tree stood for 1,275 years.
When the baobab fruit pods are cracked open, the dry pulp is separated from the seeds and shell and milled into a fine powder. This is a simple process as it’s the only fruit in the world that dries on the branch, so there’s no need for it to be mechanically dried.
Baobab fruit powder is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, iron and potassium. It’s also a good source of antioxidants and polyphenols, which can reduce inflammation – good news if you suffer from sore gums or mouth ulcers.
