I know what you’re thinking…. What the heck is Baobab? Well first of all, it’s not a verb. It’s not the next Gangnam Style or Harlem Shake… although that’s a good idea lol.
My team and I just completed a production of two really cool videos to promote awareness of a little known superfood out of Africa. Now I could tell you all about Baobab, but I’d rather show you! What I will say is it’s stunning how few people have heard of it. But even more staggering is Baobab’s ORAC value (see below graphic)… it blows Açaí and Goji away! Here’s the skinny:
- 6x the Vitamin C of oranges
- Planet’s highest source of Calcium (yes, more than milk!)
- More Iron than red meat (omg!)
I’m putting the raw powder in everything! From my favorite go-to smoothies to hot cereal to baking mix. The sheer nutritional power coupled with the fact that Baobab is providing a sustainable cash crop for women (yay!) in Mali, make this funny-sounding superfruit [bey-oh-bab] a Veggie Dreamgirl’s BFF.
