Baobab is a superfruit that has great things, like antioxidants,dietary fibervitamin Cvitamin Bcalciummagnesium, and potassium. The fruit – a big, coconut looking thing – comes from Africa’s picturesque baobab tree, known as the “Tree of Life.

One serving (about 2 tablespoons) contains 24% of your daily recommended dietary fiber and 25% of the daily recommended Vitamin C. And if that wasn’t enough, the fiber in the Baobab fruit pulp acts as a prebiotic – helping your gut grow its good bacteria so that you can better absorb nutrients. And it’s extremely alkaline with a PRAL value of -52. Its tangy and slightly sweet taste works well in smoothies, tomato sauce, desserts, and many other foods.
