Watch out acai and goji berries, there’s a new superfruit in town that hails from somewhere other than China or South America. In fact, this rare breed boasts an unparalleled nutritional profile and known as the “Queen of Superfruits.”
Introducing, Baobab, an African wild-harvested fruit that is bursting with essential minerals and nutrients. What makes baobab the most super superfruit of them all? Well first, baobab provides consumers a natural way to achieve healthy, glowing skin since it is packed with both antioxidants and vitamin C. More importantly, the delicious, light, and subtly tangy flavor of this superfruit blends perfectly with other fruity tastes, making it easy to squeeze in your daily dose since it works as an addition to your morning yogurt or afternoon smoothie.
The NEW YOU team was lucky enough to have the chance to try out some of the baobab products from the brand Baobab Foods, the leading supplier and manufacturer of baobab superfood products. In fact, our very own publisher couldn’t stop raving about these tasty treats after testing and tasting the Baobest Baobites—bite-size fruit morsels made with fruit powder, real fruit concentrates, and pectin.
But it doesn’t end there. Apart from being one of the most nutritious foods on earth, baobab provides several beauty benefits too. This exotic species promotes collagen production because of its high levels of vitamin C, so say good-bye to your wrinkles and fine lines and hello to a healthy glowing skin! Baobab also reduces the visible signs of aging due to its powerful polyphenol content and antioxidant levels, so you can bet your skin’s elasticity will be stronger and smoother than ever before.

Antioxidant- and fiber-rich baobab is on the verge of stealing the crown from acai, goji berries and pomegranate as the “queen of superfruits,” thanks to awareness raised by recent and upcoming product launches featuring the ingredient, according to a key ingredient supplier.

SPINS (Schaumburg, IL) market researcher Kimberly Kawa has found that the relatively new superfruits category evolves rapidly and is subject to “industry hype” and endorsements by both celebrities (Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Mehmet Oz) and popular integrative and alternative medicine professionals. Consequently, a given superfruit may spike in popularity one year and crash and burn the next; however, a review of superfruits’ media coverage and commercial availability indicates that once a fruit is labeled “super,” it doesn’t seem to ever vanish completely from the market or from popular media’s memory.In 2015, the superfruits with the greatest market share, and those displaying the most explosive growth during the previous 12 months, comprise an interesting mix of well-known, native-grown standbys, such as cherries and blueberries; fruits for whom some solid science has been expertly exploited, such as pomegranates; and lesser-known imported fruits, such as baobab, maqui, and golden berry.
The following are a handful of today’s “hottest” superfruits based on current sales data and growth over the past year (provided by SPINS), as well as each fruit’s nutritional highlights and uses in functional foods (e.g., snack bars and functional beverages) and supplements.
Sales of the fruit of the African baobab tree increased a remarkable 208% from all natural sales channels, including grocery and specialty/gourmet, from June 2014 to July 2015. “I have noticed the inclusion of baobab in superfruit-positioned fruit chews, supplement powders, and functional beverages,” SPINS’ Kawa says.
Baobab is thriving in the supplements segment as well, increasing a full 267% over the past year. Baobab is not yet a household name in the United States, but it has garnered some respectable media attention for its high concentrations of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, and its ease of processing thanks to the fruit’s low moisture content.
Pictured: Launched in September, Baobest’s Baobab BaoBites are “flavor-packed, deliciously addictive bite-size fruit morsels made with only organic baobab fruit powder, real fruit concentrates, and pectin. BaoBites are a fun-to-eat nutritional powerhouse and contain no fat, cholesterol, or preservatives, and are perfect for adding some zing to snacking, baking, trail mixes, mixing into cookies and muffins, sprinkling on oatmeal or cereal, and more. BaoBites Superfruit Snacks have twice the antioxidants of dried blueberries, 3 grams of fiber, and are only 128 calories per 40 gram serving.”

I received a sample of the Baobab Fruit Powder to review.
Baobab’s tangy flavor tastes great in most in everything! The natural properties of our southern African Baobab are unique. This Baobab delivers 6 times the antioxidants found in baobab from other parts of the world. Baobab supports a healthy immune system and lowers inflammation throughout the body with its unique mix of fiber and antioxidants. Baobab Fruit Powder consists of more than 50% fiber by weight. The majority of this fiber is of the highly beneficial soluble variety.
My thoughts: I am really loving this product! So far, I have been enjoying it in my bottled water. I just add up to two Tbsps. and shake it up really good. Sometimes I freeze my water just enough to make it slushy and it is amazing! It is tangy and I think it tastes amazing. I feel like it is giving my skin a beautiful glow, and I have noticed that my energy levels have skyrocketed.
My well-being has really improved as well. I feel wonderful and healthy. The only thing I have been doing differently is drinking this Baobab mixture every day. I love it!
