Baobab ingredient to gain traction in food and beverage sector
The baobab fruit can be easily integrated into a wide variety of food and beverage products. The all-natural ingredient, which contains high level of ascorbic acid, enhances other flavors and brings them into focus, improving overall quality of the finished product. The product is highly alkalizing, gluten-free, and low glycemic index, making it desirable in the industry.
Baobab powder earns its position in the superfood category on account of extraordinary nutritional profile. It is rich in vitamins, all eight amino acids required by the body, protein which helps build and repaid muscles, and strong antioxidants. The powder serves as an excellent source of soluble as well insoluble fiber which improves digestive health, helps maintain healthy weight, creates a feeling of satiety, and delivers prebiotic activity to support probiotics growth.
When it comes to functional beverages, baobab powder has increasingly emerged as a cost-efficient ingredient that provides an unparalleled nutritional punch. It is being extensively used in single strength beverages, yogurts and smoothies, powdered drink mixes and supplements, and food products such as cereals, granolas, and energy and nutrition bars.
Food manufacturers are exploring new ways to integrate the goodness of the superfruit into products and capitalize on the growing trend of natural and organic foods.
Recently for instance, EcoProducts B’Ayoba had launched two new baobab ingredient-based product innovations in January 2020. These include the Red Baobab Tea and Ready-to-Use Baobab Paste which have primarily been formulated for beverage applications.
Not only is the ingredient a highly cost-efficient way to make food and beverage products nutrition-rich, but it is also an incredibly versatile and sustainable ingredient. Baobab’s well-rounded nutritional profile makes it preferable for a wide range of uses and suitable for myriad opportunities for food innovation.
