Today am super excited to review a superfood which most of you might not have heard about – Baobab Powder!. Pandavita, a UK based brand, sells 100% natural, 100% organic Baobab powder that’s produced in Ghana, Africa & packed in the UK.
What is Baobab?
Baobab (Bay-Oh-Bab) is an exotic fruit, grown on magnificent trees in Africa. It is the only fruit in the world that naturally dries inside its shell and this is because of the hot weather. Pandavita removes the sweet-tasting, dried fruit powder and pack it into kraft-paper pouches. Their baobab fruit powder is 100% organic and free from nasties like sugar, preservatives and additives. It is just a pure, raw superfruit.
Baobab tree is also known as the upside down tree, the monkey bread tree or the tree of life. They look other worldly. Pretty breathtaking, don’t you think?..
Benefits of Baobab
Overall studies have shown that baobab has:
●10 times the antioxidant level of oranges and 6 x more antioxidants than cranberries, blueberries and blackberries.
● Up to 6 times more Vitamin C than oranges.
● 4 times more potassium than a banana.
● 2 times more calcium than milk.
● More iron than spinach.
It also contains zinc, manganese, essential fatty acids, phosphorus, protein and vitamin B complexes.

My experience with Baobab powder
This fine, cream colored, raw fruit powder is a treat to the taste buds. It has a tart, citrusy taste. It has a full bodied, complex flavor that leaves you with a filling sensation. I first tried the powder on it’s own to understand it’s taste.
Then, I tried it as a drink. When mixing with water, add a little water to the powder to create a paste, then gradually add more water while stirring. It’s a lovely drink with a citrusy taste. I tried with 2 tsps in a glass of water as suggested on the pack that the powder came in. But had to increase the number of tsps to get the right taste.
The Baobab powder comes in a resealable, recyclable environment friendly & cute Kraft paper pouch. Just love it!. 5% of every purchase on Pandavita goes to charity, which is great. I highly recommend you try this because it is so delicious and will enhance the flavour of anything that you are having, that has a fruity taste to begin with. Not to mention all the wonderful benefits it comes loaded with. Also, this product is gluten free, vegan friendly, paleo friendly, non GMO, dairy free & sugar free.

Reading about all of it’s benefits, being the skincare crazed person that I am, I couldn’t help but wonder whether it’s available as a skincare product. Guess what I found online?. Aura Cacia’s organic Baobab oil!. That’s on my wish list now 🙂
Also, did you notice Pandavita’s logo?. It’s so adorable and cute. They chose their name based on the fact that Pandas are adorable and seem so happy and ‘vita’ in Italian means ‘happy life’. It’s all about achieving a happy, healthy life ♥.
