Why PlanetBIO baobab?
Sun dried on a tree. Ripe fruits are dried on a tree and fall off by themselves. This ensures that PlanetBIO baobab powder is at its nutritional peak.
Fair trade. By buying PlanetBIO baobab, you support sustainable development of local communities and the preservation of savannah ecosystem.
From Senegal,where baobab grows naturally.
Baobab (Adansonia digitata) is a tree of magnificent appearance, growing in African savannah. Its trunk can reach a diameter of up to eleven meters, and some baobab trees are much older than 1000 years. White flowers, which are pollinated by bats, develop into big fruits with a hard shell. Dry soft pulp is hidden inside it, surrounding the kidney-shaped seeds. Ripe fruits dry on the tree and eventually fall of. PlanetBIO baobab powder is made from the dry pulp, ground into powder.
PlanetBIO baobab powder is made of dried pulp of baobab fruits. They naturally dry on the tree by themselves. Dry pulp is later on ground into a fine powder and contains most of the original nutrients.
PlanetBIO baobab supports fair trade, sustainable development of local communities and the preservation of the savannah ecosystem.

Due to its high vitamin C content, baoab powder has a fresh tangy flavor that goes well into smoothies, juices and plant based yoghurts. It can also be added to cereals, porridges, fruit salads or even bread dough. We recommend always using it in cold dishes or after heating to preserve the most of its vitamin content.
Is there such a thing as free shipping?
Sure, why not? Here's how it's possible to get your products free of shipping charges.
Do you know the good ol' mantra "Customer is King; we appreciate our customers and would do anything for them" ? Well, it's true for us too, but then again we want the feeling to be mutual. So how can we help each other?
You help us with ordering more than just the minimum order (which is 30 EUR) => to pay the bills, salaries and to grow, offer you more, higher quality, special prices => and we promise to give back to you by not charging the shipping costs.
We're currently shipping to the following countries with the following shipping charges:
- Zone 0 (Slovenia, home country): 5,00 € (well, they are closer...)
- Zone 1 & 2 (Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Croatia): 11,99 €
- Zone 3 (Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Hungary, Poland, Great Britain, Lithuania): 15,99 €
- Zone 4 (Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Finland, Spain, Sweden): 20,99 €
- Zone 5 (Greece, Ireland, Portugal): 22,99 €
- Zone 6 (Bulgaria): 31,99 €
- Please note: We don't send to Switzerland, Turkey and Norway due to too high costs of transport & customs.
- Unfortunately we don’t offer free shipping for orders from Grand Canary Island and Tenerife.. We are trying our best to find the best solution.
... and we take away that cost if your order:
- Zone 0: over 20,00 €
- Zone 1 & 2: over 60,00 €
- Zone 3: over 80,00 €
- Zone 4 & 5: over 100,00 €
- Zone 6: over 120,00 €
Prices of products vary from as low as 2,49 € and up to 24,99 €, but on average they're around 14€. It's not hard to get total amount up to 100€. You don't have to, but if you do, we take care of the expensive transport.
Now, if you order (Zone 3 for example) for let say 64€, you pay extra 16€ for transporting the goods to your place. Wouldn't you rather top that order with another product of 16+€, and get the whole package without shipping charges? We're basically giving you the products for free and covering the transport fee ourselves, but have the opportunity to grow as a company, since we earn more that way.
How's that for a win-win situation?
