Some people call baobab a super food, this is because of its high level of nutrients like vitamin C and calcium. Now it is catching up in western countries. In 2009 the US Department of Agriculture has approved Baobab fruit to be imported to USA, in 2008 UK did the same thing. I am not sure if we will see this fruit in our grocery stores very soon, but that is good news for Baobab juice lovers.
These are the nutrition facts:
- This fruit has more than 6 times vitamin C than in oranges
- Two times more calcium than in cow milk
- High in potassium
- High in phosphorus
- Contains niacin
- Contains riboflavin
- High in anti-oxidants than in berries and pomegranate
- This is a very good fruit for pregnant and breast feeding women.
