BELLEVUE, Wash.

Baobab Foods, creator of nutrient-dense superfood products, today announced the launch of new Baobest™ Organic Moringa Leaf Powders for wholesale and industrial food formulation. Designed to mix seamlessly into a variety of products to infuse the nutritional power of moringa leaf, new Baobest Organic Moringa Leaf Powders are GFSI Certified and blend easily with proteins, greens, or fruit powders for nutritional powder mixes. The powders can also be added to smoothie bases, baked goods, nutrition bars, granola clusters, cereals and more. Baobest Organic Moringa Leaf Powders are debuting at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 6-8, at booth #1628, where show attendees are invited to sample the new products, and learn more about their nutritional benefits and applications.

“We have always strived to bring the most nutrient-dense superfood products to the masses, while maintaining our responsible harvesting practices,” said Stephan Broburg, general manager of Baobab Foods. “We’re excited to debut the first GFSI Certified Organic Moringa Leaf Powder sourced in Southern Africa at SupplySide West. Our superior Organic Moringa Leaf Powder is processed within 24 hours of harvesting to ensure high efficacy and low microbial counts, giving this nutritional powerhouse limitless applications.”

Baobest Organic Moringa Leaf Powder is available in two formats:

  • Raw Powder – minimally processed with a wider range of microbial levels
  • Low Total Plate Count (LTPC) Powder – employs a dry steam kill step to establish overall lower plate count levels without impacting nutrient values

Native to Northern India, and now cultivated across Central and Southern Africa, the moringa leaf is widely regarded as one of the most nutrient-dense plants ever studied. In addition to boasting extremely high levels of antioxidants, the plant also provides a plant-based source of protein, fiber, calcium, iron, selenium, B vitamins and Vitamins C and E. Like all Baobab Foods products, Baobest Organic Moringa Leaf Powders are vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, sustainably sourced, and free of cholesterol and common allergens, including dairy, eggs, nuts, wheat and soy.

As the world’s largest supplier and marketer of baobab superfruit from Southern Africa, Baobab Foods is proud to provide sustainable and socially-conscious ingredients for a multitude of national brands across the cereal, nutrition bar, nutritional supplement, HPP juice and trail mix categories.
