The baobab fruit, "super-food" with a tangy taste, is rich in vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, antioxidants and magnesium. Also called monkey bread, it sharpens the appetite of industrialists in Europe and the United States. But this growing demand on the international market is causing concern. Experts warn against intensive production that would weaken baobabs, already heavily affected by climate change.
