Hi davecortesi, thanks for the plug.
I believe you’re talking about our comment “Adding Organic Baobab Powder to help make our blends even smoother”?
To help explain this comment further, we have now added organic baobab powder, which has enabled us to reduce the amount of organic coconut flour, and the total result of this, makes our new blends even smoother. So instead of writing a long comment like this, we abbreviated the comment, however now I see how this comment can be misinterpreted.
To clarify, we have added organic baobab to all our new (Him & Her) blends.
Our PrimalKind For Her (version 1.2 blends) contained almost twice the amount of coconut flour, compared to our PrimalKind For Him (version 1.2 blends). Which made our PrimalKind For Her (version 1.2 blends) a little grittier.
Now we’ve added organic baobab powder, our new PrimalKind For Her (version 1.3 blends) contain around the same amount of coconut flour as our PrimalKind For Him (version 1.3 blends).
Why Organic Baobab Powder?
- It is natural and has been used for centuries by indigenous people for its extraordinary high levels of essential nutrients. Baobab fruit dries naturally on the tree and the fruit pulp is simply crushed and sieved to produce Baobab powder, maintaining its delicious raw flavour and natural nutrient goodness.
- High in Fibre: containing 50% fibre (67% soluble fibre and 33% insoluble fibre) which helps digestive health by systematically detoxifying and cleansing toxins throughout the liver and digestive tract. It’s also a natural prebiotic for promoting gut health.
- Rich in Vitamin C: an essential vitamin and antioxidant, which helps immune functionality, Iron absorption, increase white blood cell count, aids metabolism and energy release, supports collagen formation which helps improve joint and skin elasticity.
- High in essential Minerals: Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Iron, and Copper, which helps create electrolyte balance, improve circulation, prevent muscle cramping, increase bone strength, aids metabolism, the production of haemoglobin, nutrient absorption, and is naturally alkalising to help balance the body’s pH levels.
- Excellent source of Antioxidants: Baobab fruit contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants, more than goji berries, pomegranates and blueberries. Rich in flavonoid polyphenols: Kaempferol and Quercetin, considered one of the most abundant antioxidants in the human diet, they are anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-allergic, and anti-inflammatory, essential for protecting, repairing and preventing cells from free radical damage, and for supporting longevity and anti-aging benefits.
These health benefits are important to me & I personally think it’s worth the extra cost.
I’m essentially making the ultimate product for myself & my wife to use, & I believe health is more important than the cost.
However if you just want a simple fibre solution & cost is you driving factor, than I would recommend Gum Arabic, as it’s a much more natural solution & doesn’t cause symptoms like Xanthan Gum.
While Xanthan Gum is considered safe for human consumption, it is essentially a manufactured ingredient and can cause issues when consumed in larger quantities, like being a laxative, and it can cause issues for individuals with digestive problems. And I would prefer to avoid that.
Anyway I hope this helps clarify the comment, our reasoning, however please let us know if you like any further information, I’m all for DIY, and optimising nutrition, so I’m happy to help where possible. Cheers.
