Creating a Market For Biodiverse Health Ingredients: KAIBAE gives a voice to wild plants as powerful catalysts for improving health & beauty, advancing social good and preserving biodiversity. Once considered Lost Crops™, these wild plants and their rediscovered benefits now promote economic development in regions of the world where natural resources grow abundantly and poverty is widespread. KAIBAE initiated their supply chain for Baobab in 2011, introducing Baobab to the market as its first Lost Crop ™ ingredient. The Baobab Tree, also known as the “Tree of Life”, grows abundantly in arid regions of Africa. These massive trees live for thousands of years and produce fruit pods containing highly nutritious powder and seeds. Baobab fruit powder is naturally sweet & tangy, packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and prebiotic fiber. Baobab leaves make a delicious mildly sweet tasting herbal tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold. The leaves are rich in minerals, antioxidants and vitamin C. Improving The Microbiome Through Prebiotics: Prebiotic fiber feeds the good bacteria in your gut, which supports the immune system and promotes healthy digestion. Baobab’s high prebiotic fiber content also makes the powder low-glycemic and incredibly beneficial for gut and skin health, revitalizing biodiversity in the gut and skin microbiomes. Building Triple Bottom Line, Biodiverse Supply Chains: Inspired by the incredible health benefits of Baobab, KAIBAE established a harvest that supports livelihoods for several communities in remote northern Ghana. Building upon the triple impact model of Lost Crops™, KAIBAE has expanded to harvest other wild plants in the Amazon Rainforest and Indian Ocean. KAIBAE’'s Inside & Out Wellness line utilizes these undervalued plants, considered Lost Crops™ to regenerate and nourish. KAIBAE’s ingredients harness the power of nutrients only found in wild plants.
