For those health-conscious among you, the new kid on the superfood block is something you’d want to stock up on.
Called baobab, this superfood is derived from an ancient African tree known as The Tree of Life, which is celebrated for its health benefits and healing properties. As a fruit that is eaten cracked open and ground into powder, the baobab is 100% natural, vegan and gluten-free, and is free of additives or processed ingredients. What’s more, baobab has also six times more vitamin C than an orange, six times more potassium than a banana, twice as much calcium as milk, more soluble fibre than psyllium, and more magnesium than coconut water. True to its title as the new superfood, baobab is not just an ideal food ingredient, but in its oil form baobab also has a velvety feel to it, meaning it can easily serve as a skin hydrating product while preventing wrinkles and signs of ageing with its plentiful amount of vitamin A and E.
We know you must be wondering where in Hong Kong the baobab can be had. You may order online at Nice Things, or buy it at Anything but Salads (Sai Ying Pun), Healthy Chicken (Central), Organic Footmark (Ma On Shan and Mong Kok), Spicebox Organics (Sai Ying Pun), Maya Café (Wan Chai), IFC Foodlab (Fanling) and many more!
