Why the Baobab fruit?
Mainly present in West and South Africa, the Baobab is one of the oldest trees on earth. Respected for centuries by various African communities for its health virtues, its fruit is becoming more and more known internationally.
GOOD FOR YOUR DIGESTIVE HEALTH
the Baobab fruit is made up of almost 50% natural fibres. It is much easier to absorb than the fibre found in dietary supplements. Fibre is known for its satiating effect and its ability to stimulate the growth of prebiotics. Not to mention their positive impact on digestive health.
GOOD FOR YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
the Baobab fruit is also known for its extremely high Vitamin C content, making it an important ally for your health. In fact, it contains 6 times more Vitamin C than an orange and has a high level of antioxidants.
Vitamin C releases energy on a continuous basis and allows you to feel this energy over a longer period of time. Thanks also to its high level of antioxidants, Baobab helps to strengthen the immune system and reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease.

WHERE DOES OUR FAIRTRADE BAOBAB COME FROM?
We work in collaboration with a local partner based in Casamance, Senegal. This partner has been working for more than 10 years with a group of women from different communities in Senegal. We chose this partner because its actions prioritize the respect of the communities where the Baobab fruits are harvested, as well as the preservation of the trees and the environment. These are two essential elements in our eyes.
The whole process is therefore done in the respect of the communities and the environment. the fruits naturally dry on the trees and are collected and processed on the spot by the artisans.
