100% natural, unprocessed & organic fruit powder direct from the Baobab tree.

Simply sieved from fruit to you, as if you picked it yourself.

No Milling – No Processing – No heat Extraction – No Pasteurisation – No Freeze Drying

Abundant in nature’s goodness: 50% fibre, prebiotic function, 6 x vitamin C of oranges, 2 x the antioxidants of acai berries and a great plant source of calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron.

“By placing a value on the baobab fruit, we are encouraging communities to protect their local trees and surrounding woodlands, which are also good for wildlife and biodiversity.”

Baobab fruit is harvested by communities that have the baobab tree growing naturally on their land. There are no orchards or plantations. This wild harvest approach ensures minimal negative impact on the environment because this practice maintains the natural biodiversity of the land.
These wild harvest methods also ensure pesticide and insecticide free fruit.

Two explorers. A wild adventure into the warm heart of Africa.
Hunter-gatherer eating and living were discovered. Village people would gather every morning under the huge majestic Baobab tree to meet, harvest Baobab fruit, collect water and trade.
This is where Jenny and Clive had their first taste of the Baobab fruit.

We are proud to say that our oil is 100% pure.

Baobab oil is made from baobab seeds. The baobab fruit’s hard outer shell is cracked open and the inside powder and seeds are removed.

The seeds are then taken and washed to remove their powder coating and then air dried in the hot African sun.  These seeds can be stored for many months before further processing.

The oil is extracted from the seeds by the cold-press process.  An oil press, or expeller, ‘squeezes’ the oil from the baobab seed.  The freshly pressed oil is filtered immediately which clarifies the oil, before being bottled.  Rawtanica Baobab Oil has not undergone any further refinement or processing and has no additives. 

Baobab oil is detrimental to human health if ingested and should not be used as food or in food products.Baobab oil contains CPFA (Cyclopropenoic Fatty Acids) at the range between 10% and 12.8%, depending on the nature of a Baobab product.

The level of CPFA, which cannot harm (tolerate limit) users of Baobab oil, is 0.4% if ingested.

Harvesting Practices

“By placing a value on the baobab fruit, we are encouraging communities to protect their local trees and surrounding woodlands, which are also good for wildlife and biodiversity.”

Baobab fruit is harvested by communities that have the baobab tree growing naturally on their land. There are no orchards or plantations. This wild harvest approach ensures minimal negative impact on the environment because this practice maintains the natural biodiversity of the land.

These wild harvest methods also ensure pesticide and insecticide free fruit.

  • preservation of biodiversity
  • community allocation fruit harvest
  • quota on fruit harvested per season
  • PhytoTrade Africa regulated
  • community harvest methods
  • no orchards or plantations
  • sustainable sourcing of fruit
  • only fallen fruit collected

Seasonal Harvest

With each seasonal harvest (one harvest per year) a quota of the crop remains with the villages for their own personal needs and uses. There is also regulation on how much baobab powder can be harvested each season. This is overseen by PhytoTrade Africa which is an ethical and sustainable body in Africa.
