Baobab fruit powder is a remarkable food ingredient. Raw Living baobab fruit powder is Fairtrade and sustainable. The growers are organically certified.

By harvesting baobab, which is abundant in Southern Africa, these people can substantially increase their income at no cost to themselves. This helps them pay for family healthcare and their children's education as well as household necessities.
