Under the brand name “The Essence of Africa”, africrops! GmbH Berlin has been selling plant-based products from Africa in Germany since 2013. These include the superfoods moringa and baobab, which with their healthy ingredients can help to strengthen the immune system. The company has a strict approach to sustainability, and takes great care to ensure a fair and sustainable source of income for local producers in Africa.
The moringa tree is also known as the “Tree of Life” and is one of the most nutritious plants in the world, with versatile leaves and seeds. The Essence of Africa offers moringa leaf powder in the form of practical pellets, powder and organic moringa tea, as well as baobab and moringa anti-aging oils for hair and skin care.
The moringa for these products comes from Tanzania, Gambia, Nigeria and Namibia, and is extremely rich in nutrients. Both superfoods contain many vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins and amino acids, along with a lot of fibre. Good moringa powder is characterized by an intense green color; the rich green indicates a high iron content. The smell is fresh and slightly grassy. The Essence of Africa products are available in well-stocked grocery stores, supermarkets and online at https://theessenceofafrica.com.
