Calcium: Our baobab fruit powder contains over 250mg/g of calcium, vital for building and maintaining healthy bones. That means baobab contains more calcium than milk and may make it the richest-known plant source of this mineral. This is of particular interest to makers of products for vegetarians and vegans.
Iron: Recent surveys have found that many of us – including a majority of women – do not consume enough iron. Our baobab fruit powder is a rich source of iron containing 3.6mg/100g – more than many other foods traditionally recommended for their iron content such as red meat, spinach and lentils.
Potassium: Our baobab fruit powder contains 2120mg/100g of potassium. That is almost six times higher than banana, frequently recommended by nutritionists for its potassium content. Potassium is important for many aspects of health including the nervous system and muscle function. Since potassium loss can occur through sweating, baobab’s high potassium content may be of particular interest to makers of sports and fitness products.
Magnesium: At 144.5mg/g, our baobab fruit powder is a rich natural source of magnesium, a mineral that has been linked to bone health, heart health and lowering of high blood pressure.
