Breadfruit holds huge promises and could be the next big trend, according to a research team from the University of British Columbia (UBC).
Breadfruit grows in abundance in tropical and South Pacific countries and can be eaten in a variety of ways, including fresh or dried and ground into flour. According to the team’s studies, it is a more nutritional and sustainable alternative to staples such as wheat, cassava and potatoes.
The researchers also believe that it has the potential to improve worldwide food security and mitigate diabetes.
For the project, the researchers had four breadfruits from the same tree in Hawaii shipped to the Murch Lab at UBC Okanagan.
“Detailed and systematic studies of the health impacts of a breadfruit diet had not previously been conducted and we wanted to contribute to the development of breadfruit as a sustainable, environmentally-friendly and high-production crop,” explained study lead, Ying Liu.
