Kakadu Plum

The Australian bush plum (“Kakadu Plum”) grows in Western Australia and the Northern territory, and is considered to be the world’s richest source of natural vitamin C. The fresh fruit contains over 3% vitamin C by weight – 50 times the concentration found in oranges – The fruit powder, produced by a patented method designed to prevent loss of vitamin C, can contain from just under 10% to over 20% w/w vitamin C. The vast majority of vitamin C contained in readily available supplements is synthetic.

As well as being an excellent source of natural vitamin C, the Kakadu plum has also been shown to have significant antioxidant properties. It is also an excellent source of dietary fibre (around 47% by weight in the powder) and is relatively low in sugar, but containing 5 times more glucose than fructose. For a table showing comparative values of vitamin C in various fruits refer to Wikipedia.

For centuries the Kakadu Plum has been used as a food source by the Australian Aborigines. Coradji has worked together with Australian indigenous communities in Western Australia and The Northern Territory to put in place the infrastructure necessary to harvest and supply commercial quantities of Kakadu Plum. This has already lead directly to tangible benefits for these communities and is providing them with an opportunity to develop and manage their own bush Kakadu Plum industry.

Coradji has also worked with Australian government departments responsible for conservation of native plants and forests, in addition to those departments principally concerned with providing support to the Australian Aboriginal peoples.
