Baobab, The New Super Fruit

Get ready for Baobab fever. And we’re not talking about these guys. No, baobab is the newest super fruit to hit our shores. Coffee berry, acai and goji are old news.

Billed as the king of the superfruits, here are its stats…
More than 10 times the antioxidant level of oranges. And six times more vitamin C.
More than twice the calcium level of milk.
Soluble fibre in fruit pulp has pre-biotic qualities and stimulates good bacteria in the gut.
High in potassium, important for brain, nerve and muscle function. And phosphorus, which helps bones.
