Organic Baobab Powder

While it sounds simple to turn baobab fruit into powder, the actual process is labor-intensive. To ensure that the baobab fruit powder is of the highest quality, the green, itchy fuzz is scrubbed off of the outside of the fruit. The next step in creating organic baobab powder is to crack open the superfruit and scoop out the contents – which includes the baobab pulp, pulp-encrusted seeds and the fibers. The dehydrated fruit powder offers a huge health benefit to those who are interested in buying the fruit powder wholesale.
