Have you ever heard of baobab? I hadn’t until the nice folk at the Eden Project asked if I would like to try some Baobab Powder. I was curious and asked more.
It turns out baobab is a tree referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’ in Africa and the fruit that the tree bears is highly sought after as it has many healthy qualities. In fact, this super fruit has more vitamin C than oranges, more iron than red meat and is packed with potassium, magnesium and calcium. The fruit comes in a powdered form which can be added to recipes and I was told, great in baked goods. The Eden Project also carry a range of other items with baobab in it.
