Background

B’Ayoba was founded in 2012 and is now one of the biggest companies in the world producing baobab. B’Ayoba works with impoverished wild collectors in the very driest parts of Zimbabwe, which also happens to be the areas where baobab occurs. Their production is all organically certified, so they have full traceability throughout their supply chain ensuring that the highest quality international standards are met.

They engage in ethical and sustainable wild harvesting adding value to their FairWild and organically certified products.[1]

The Health Benefits of Baobab Fruit

In 2013, researchers from the Oxford Brookes Centre for Nutrition and Health published a paper on the remarkable impact of baobab fruit powder on glycaemic response. Gus Le Breton (the African Plant Hunter) delves deeper into the properties of this extraordinary African superfruit and investigates why this happens (it’s all, apparently, in the fibre and polyphenols) and what the implications are for our health. His conclusion – baobab fruit powder is an excellent food to help moderate glycaemic and insulin response, manage weight and prevent the onset of Type 2 Diabetes. In addition to his plant-hunting activities, Gus also runs a baobab-producing business in Zimbabwe.[2]
