How we make our baobab powder

Baobab powder is the ‘pulp’ of baobab fruit. It holds the seeds in the fruit, much like the white of an apple. Baobab powder is naturally dry, not moist like apple pulp. This makes it easy to extract and package. EcoProducts baobab powder has not undergone any further refinement or processing and has no additives. We are proud to say that our powder is 100% pure.

The fruit mature during the dry season and drop off the trees when ready to harvest. People living in rural areas collect the fruit from under the trees. The fruit are transported to our processing facility. Here the fruit are cracked open and the inside powder and seed is removed. The powder is then sieved twice. The first sieving is to separate out the seeds. The second uses a very fine sieve to remove fibres. The fine creamy-coloured powder is then ready to be packed.
