More total dietary fiber than other fruit purées

Consumers and product developers are increasingly aware of dietary fiber’s multiple health benefits particularly with the gut microbiome, but most fruit purées fall short in their ability to deliver on fiber content. Our Baobab Fruit Purée contains over 11g/100g of total dietary fiber, several times more than other fruit purées.

 

Research conducted by Doehler and the Center of Microbial Ecology and Technology at Ghent University in Belgium found that Baobab Fruit fiber's prebiotic effect on probiotic gut bacteria is as powerful as the ‘gold standard’ prebiotic inulin, but at half the dose. This is supported by multiple studies into the Hadza, a hunter-gatherer tribe in Tanzania who consume large amounts of Baobab Fruit throughout the year, which have found that they have one of the most diverse gut microbiomes on the planet. Researchers have suggested that this is due to the high soluble fiber content in their diet.

Production

Our Baobab Fruit Purée is made from Baobab Fruit sourced from Zimbabwe where Baobab trees grow in abundance throughout the entire country. These trees are sustainably wild-harvested by over 5000 registered collectors from local rural communities. The Zimbabwean harvesting season falls between May and September when the Baobab Fruit pods are in peak condition. This ensures our Baobab Fruit Purée is produced using the most nutrient-dense and consistent fruits. Manufactured in the UK by Blue Sky Botanics on their brand new aseptic production line, the purée is pasteurized and immediately packaged to preserve the nutrients and ensure a long shelf life.
