Baobab is the name of a fruit from the Adansonia genus of trees and it is found inside hard pods that hang upside-down from the trees. Baobab is usually consumed as a powder made from the harvested fruit that is dried and ground. It has a pleasant, citrusy flavour. Baobab powder is renowned for its high vitamin C content, with one tablespoon providing just over half of the RDA of vitamin C for adults (22.5mg). It is also a good source of iron, B vitamins, potassium, fibre and protein.
