The African baobab fruit is a high source of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
BI Nutraceuticals (Irvine, CA) is jumping on the baobab game early by introducing its baobab fruit powder this month.
Native to Africa, baobab fruit is a high source of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. High levels of potassium and phosphorus give baobab natural preservative properties, too, says BI Nutraceuticals.
Baobab is also a source of soluble fibers, making this food beneficial for digestive health factors. The fiber content also makes for a good binding agent.
Baobab fruit holds Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status in the United States and is considered a novel food in the European Union.
