How Much Baobab Fruit Do You Need (By XSQP27)

One of the most common questions we get when it comes to the Baobab Fruit is – How Much Baobab Fruit should I take?  While this is a reasonable and logical questions, there really isn’t a great answer.  How many strawberries should you eat?  How many oranges should you have per day?  Baobab is a fruit and should be consumed much as you would eat other fruits.

Beware of Too Little Baobab Fruit

While there is no dosage, or set amount of Baobab fruit you should take in a day, we can tell you that 500mg of Baobab Fruit is too little!  More and more supplements are coming to market that contain small amounts of Baobab fruit powder.  Is 1/2 a gram of Baobab fruit enough to give you any real health benefits?  No.  Just as 1/2 a gram of blueberries will not do much for you either.

So, while we can’t tell you an upper limit for the amount of Baobab fruit you should have each day, we can tell you that you really need to have at least 5grams a day to have any real impact on your health.

Different Baobab Powders Have Different Nutrients

The brand of Baobab Powder you take also has a big impact on how you feel.  We like Organic Baobab powder that comes from Malawi Africa and has been dried in the Baobab shell.  Baobab powder that naturally dehydrates in the shell has the most nutrients when tested in powder form.

So our advice is to first go with a good 100% Organic Baobab Fruit powder that is made from Baobab Fruit grown in Malawi.  You want to make sure it is pure Baobab Fruit powder, with nothing else added.  You also want to see “naturally dehydrated” on the label.  You do NOT want heat being used to dry the Baobab fruit into a powder – this can kill the nutrients.

Once you have a great Baobab Powder, just try to work 5-15 grams of Baobab Powder into your diet each day.

Keep the questions coming!


How To Buy Baobab Powder on Amazon.Com

Amazon.Com is not just for books anymore!  Today you can buy pretty much anything on Amazon.Com and that includes Baobab Fruit Powder!  A quick search of Baobab Fruit on Amazon.Com returns over 50 products, so how do you pick out the best Baobab Fruit products?  That is what we are here for!

Finding the Best Baobab Fruit on Amazon.Com

To find the best Baobab Powder on Amazon, you need to carefully read the label of each product and sometimes even read between the lines.  For example, no one is going to advertise that their Baobab Fruit is NOT certified Organic.  So, if you see a label that talks about many other things, but never mentions if the Baobab is organic or not, you can be sure it is NOT Organic.  Simply put, if a Baobab supplement is certified Organic, you can be sure that they will say that on the label.

All of that being said, here are some things to look for when shopping for Baobab Powder on Amazon.Com.

Buy Organic Baobab Powder

You want to see the USDA Organic Seal on the label.  The best is 100% Certified Organic Baobab Fruit powder.

No Other Ingredients

You are paying for Baobab Fruit, so you should just get Baobab fruit in the product.  No fillers, no cheap ingredients – there should just be one ingredient on the label – Baobab Fruit!

 No Heat During Drying

The Baobab Fruit is packed with Nutrients, but if it is exposed to high heat, the nutrients can be killed off.  Some companies turn Baobab Pulp into powder by heating away the water – this is NOT good.

You want a Baobab Fruit powder that was made by letting the Baobab pulp naturally dehydrate in the shell.  Once the pulp dehydrates, the seeds are removed and the pulp is milled into a powder.  By using this process, no nutrients are killed in the conversion from pulp to powder.

Look for Positive Reviews

One of the great things about shopping at Amazon is that people will leave honest reviews on the products they buy.  Look for verified reviews – as this means they actually purchased the product.  I would try to get a Baobab powder with 4 or more stars.

Hopefully this will help you shop at Amazon.Com and find the best Baobab Powder.  If you have questions about a specific brand, just let us know!




What is Baobab – In Video Form!

Here at What is Baobab? we have written a great deal about the Baobab Fruit and the Baobab Tree.  Still, we understand some people are more visual learners and not so big on the endless reading.  With this in mind we did some searching on YouTube to see if we could find video that explained what is Baobab and went over the health benefits of the Baobab fruit.

We Hit The Jackpot With Limitless Good

We came across this playlist of Baobab Fruit videos while searching on YouTube.  Looks like the company Limitless Good has a great deal of information, research and articles on the Baobab Fruit and its health benefits.

In terms of the videos they do – all very clear and even entertaining.  Here is a video on What is Baobab -

We have written thousands of words on the Baobab fruit, but I really think those two videos did a fantastic job of explaining what is Baobab and why you might want to include Baobab fruit in your diet.

Another Resource for Baobab Research

In doing our research for the Baobab videos, we came across another Baobab site that is packed with information on the Baobab Fruit.  The site really focuses on Organic Baobab Fruit, but it does have good general information on the Baobab fruit as well.  The site is OrganicBaobabFruit.Net and you should definitely spend some time there reading all the articles.

Do your own research, but once you do, we think you will come to the same conclusion that we did.  Including Organic Baobab Fruit in your diet is an excellent way to improve your health!
