Exotic superfoods are all the rage these days (hello, goji berries), which is why we’re excited to tell you about a new one on our radar—baobab! If you’re looking to sneak some extra nutrients into your diet, look no further, because the fruit from this ancient tree grinds down into a superfood powder that you’ll want to sprinkle on everything. It’s so flavorful and easy to use, it’ll soon become a pantry staple. Read on to find out what makes this fruit powder so unique.
Kaibae’s Baobab Fruit Powder is a source of antioxidants, rich in vitamin C, and because each serving delivers 4 grams of fiber, which could lead to healthier digestion. Beyond these benefits, baobab is powerfully prebiotic, delivering nutrients that may help probiotics to flourish. Kaibae’s powder is certified organic, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and nut-free, so even those with sensitivities can enjoy it.
Mix, stir, and sprinkle naturally sweet and tangy baobab on all of your favorite foods. Add a tablespoon to smoothies, iced tea, water, cereal, popcorn, baked goods, or marinades to give a boost of flavor and nutrition.
Found in the African Savanna, the baobab is one of the oldest living trees on the planet. It’s also known as the 'tree of life’—sustaining communities for centuries. The trees store water in their trunks during the rainy season, producing fruit later in the year when the land is dry and barren. The fruit dries naturally on the tree and then is ground into a simple fruit powder that’s delicious just as it is—no added sweeteners necessary.
Inspired by the benefits of the baobab tree, Kaibae is passionate about helping people live better. The company hopes to provoke a new way of thinking about the intersection between people, the planet, and products that support good health.
By cooperating with local communities, Kaibae harvests baobab in a sustainable and ethical way. Its efforts haven’t gone unnoticed—Kaibae recently won an award for the Burt’s Bees Natural Launchpad, an exciting grant program recognizing up-and-coming entrepreneurs who share a passion for supporting new economies and protecting the environment, and last year it received the Nature’s Path Organic Seed to Sprout Award for Sustainability & Innovation.
