Bread fruit


It is a fruit of a tree belonging to the family Morceal which is grown only in the South Pacific region (Malay). It is a staple food there. The tree grows from 40 to 60 ft high and has large oval, glossy green leaves three to nine lobed toward the apex. Male and female flowers are borne in separate groups of flowers on the same tree. The ripe fruits or matured ovaries of these pistillate flowers are roundish, 4 to 8 inches in diameter, greenish to brownish green and have a white somewhat fibrous pulp.

Benefit and uses of Bread fruit.

  • Breadfruit is very rich in energy that the body needs for warmth, work and play.
  • That fiber can help diabetes control as it reduces the absorption of glucose (sugar) from the food that is eaten.
  • Breadfruit can be eaten once cooked, or can be further processed into a variety of other foods.
