BAOBAB

Baobab Pulp Powder and Seed Oil

Overview

African Baobab (Adansonia digitata) is one of eight main species of Baobab trees. The tree produces white flowers which eventually turn into long green or brownish fruits, like small gourds. Inside the hard shell is a soft whitish pulp and kidney shaped seeds.

The pulp is slightly powdery and is highly nutritional. Its vitamin C content has been compared with oranges. It acts as a potent antioxidant protecting our cells from free radical damage and assists in the absorption of iron and calcium. It is also rich in fibres and minerals.

Process

Baobab tree fruits are collected from natural sanctuaries through contracted wild harvesters in rural communities. Once the fruits are ripe and harvested, they are transferred to a processing yard where the outer pods are broken and the hardened pulp and seeds inside are plucked by hand under strict quality control measures. Fibers and pod parts are sieved and separated.

The fruit pulp is then gently processed through a de-husking machine to separate the pulp from the seeds without damaging the seed’s skin. The separated pulp is then milled into a fine powder with our tailor-made equipment. Finally, the fine powder is sieved again according to customer specifications.
