This Sweetener is a Natural Sugar

Natural sugars are found naturally in foods such as fruit (fructose) and milk (lactose) and some vegetables.  Baobab is a fruit native to Africa.  Baobab is naturally dehydrated and sieved into a fine powder.

It’s a Complex Carbohydrate

Complex carbs, such as the starches and fiber, make up most of the carbs in baobab powder.  They have been shown to promote healthy blood sugar levels

Inside and Out

Baobab powder has a little tangy, almost citrus kind of flavor.  Baobab powder is 50% fiber — 75% soluble and 25% insoluble. Soluble fiber supports blood cholesterol levels and heart health.  Insoluble fiber is an indigestible sugar.  They proceed to your large intestine, where they are fermented by the good bacteria in your gut.  This process produces short-chain fatty acids that keep the lining of your gut healthy.  Since the fiber is not digested, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar.

Put it to Good Use

Baobab powder is about 1/5 as sweet as table sugar.  It is perfect for sprinkling on cereal, granola, yogurt, fruit or mixing into smoothies, juices or water.
