This summer sees the launch of Artizian’s new range of Mood Food Summer Infusions. Our favourite one is Baobab, Raspberries & Almond Milk (V). We are excited to be using Baobab for the first time and have been wowed by its nutritional properties.
Baobab is the fruit of Africa’s ‘Tree of Life’. It is the only fruit in the world that dries naturally on the branch. Baking in the sun for 6 months, baobab’s green, prickly, velvet-like coating transforms into a smooth, brown, coconut-like shell. Inside it’s hard casing is the dry white-ish pulp of the fruit which contains no moisture whatsoever. We are using an award-winning Baobab range, that’s simply harvested and sieved to produce a 100% natural and organic powder that is exceptionally nutrient-rich, with an equally impressive range of benefits.
Baobab powder is a rich source of vitamin C, which contributes to normal:
- Energy release
- Immune function
- Healthy, glowing skin
It is also almost 50% fibre (two thirds soluble and one third insoluble, making it a powerful prebiotic) so it’s good for your guts too. As it is a natural source, the nutrients in Baobab are more bioavailable than manufactured vitamin supplements, enabling the body to absorb the nutrients more easily, ensuring greater uptake.
Other products in the Mood Food Summer Infusion Range are:
Mint, Beetroot & Lime (V)
Sparkling Ginger & Lemongrass (V)
Watermelon, Celery & Apple (V)
