Producers of breadfruit products are another type of entrepreneur we support.
Traditionally, breadfruit has been eaten fresh, prepared according to local customs. Now, suddenly, unique breadfruit-based foods are hitting shelves and websites, as well as menus and kitchen tables. New products are popping up in various countries.
Why does this excite us so much? Higher demand for breadfruit means more trees planted and more income for growers and entrepreneurs.
From pancakes, chips, and pickles, to gnocchi, taco shells and pizza crusts, breadfruit products are as versatile as they are nutritious and delicious.
Below are a few other breadfruit products available online.
- Made in Colorado from Jamaican breadfruit: Jus Chill’s chips
- Out of Puerto Rico: Amasar’s award-winning Breadfruit Pancake and Waffle Mix
- Made in Barbados: Ulu Foods’ highly addictive breadfruit crackers
- From the U.S. Virgin Islands: Mutiny Island Vodka, another award-winner
