You know, sometimes we are so deep into the forest, we can't see the trees! We have spent so much time talking about the nutrients in the baobab fruit, the health benefits of the Baobab and the whole Doing Good angle to including Baobab in your diet - we may have forgot a basic question...
So, the other day we had a few people email us this question and when I went back to review our articles on Baobab, I see we never really talk about where to buy the fresh, whole Baobab Fruit. So, let's quickly correct that now for our readers in the United States...
Question - Where Can I Buy Baobab Fruit?
Answer - Nowhere!
While the Baobab Fruit grows in great quantities in Africa, very little, whole, fresh Baobab fruit is exported for resale in supermarkets. So, while you will find many fruits in your fruit market, if you are in the USA, it is highly unlikely your market will carry the Baobab Fruit in a whole form.
As we discussed in this article about Baobab Fruit being listed as a Superfruit in 2014 and this article about Baobab Fruit gaining Orphan status and being heavily researched, there is a great deal happening with the Baobab Fruit in 2014. It is possible as the popularity of Baobab Fruit increases, we will start to see more fresh Baobab make its way to the States.
We clearly love the Baobab Fruit, but eating fresh Baobab is a bit of a pain. First you need to crack the hard, coconut like shell.
Once you do get it open, you would then need to pull out all the seeds before you can get to the Baobab Pulp that you want to eat. Totally doable and obviously is done in Africa, but there is a lot to be said for the convenience of having Organic, Raw Baobab Fruit in powder form.
While fresh Baobab fruit is hard to find, our 100% Organic, Totally Raw and Totally Good Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder is very easy to find. In fact, by clicking these words right here, you are magically taken to a page where you can buy the Baobab Fruit powder. Pretty incredible, huh?
We get it, it seems wrong to buy a healthy delicious fruit - that comes as powder in a jar! What makes our Limitless Baobab special is that absolutely no heat is used to process it - it is totally Raw. The Baobab fruit pulp naturally dehydrates in the shell and then we simply remove the seeds and grind the pulp into a powder. We place that powder in a jar and Boom - you've got Limitless Baobab Powder.
Sure, Limitless Baobab, with all its nutrients can help you feel good, but how does it Do Good? In a number of different ways...
For Every Bottle of Limitless Baobab Sold, We Give Money To a Charity
Our plan is to support a large number of charities, based on your feedback. Currently, for every bottle of Limitless Baobab sold we are providing 8 meals to families in need via Feeding America.
We are looking to work with a number of great charities throughout the year, drop by our Facebook page and let us know of any charities or causes you think could use our help.
Each Month We Give A Customer $200 Cash To Do Good In the Neighborhood
We firmly believe that doing good works best when it happens at a local level. Each month we will randomly pick one customer and send them $200 cash to Do Good as they see fit. Want to give money to a local food bank? Great! Want to buy toys for kids in need? Awesome! Want to give it to a family who is going through a rough time? Incredible!
Everyone has their own idea of good and we want to celebrate and share that with the world. All we ask is that you share how you did your good!
Giving Back to The Communities That Grow and Harvest the Baobab Fruit
By purchasing Limitless Baobab you are directly supporting the local communities in Malawi where our Baobab is grown and harvested. The income people earn from harvesting Baobab often changes their lives and enables them to afford things such as healthcare and education. All growers and harvesters are paid a fair wage and a share of the sales income from Baobab goes directly to funding local community projects.
Fun, Crazy Acts of Goods
We want to do Good in fun ways, that will make our accountants cry. You know, like giving 9 meals to people in need, for every person who posts a smile on our Facebook page. What is life without some crazy acts of good?
