Move over kale, there’s a new superfood in town and it’s here to end world hunger.
The could-be hero is called breadfruit although it doesn’t really seem like a fruit at all. It’s large with prickly skin and tastes like a baked potato or — you guessed it — bread when prepared.
Breadfruit grows on tall trees in tropical areas like Hawaii, Samoa, and the Caribbean. It’s high in energy from carbohydrates, low in fat, and has more potassium than 10 bananas.
But how will this tropical fruit feed the world?
According to the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), more than 80% of the world’s hungry live in tropical or subtropical regions — the type of environment that is perfect for growing breadfruit trees. These trees are very easy to maintain and can bear an abundance of fruit for decades.
Organizations like Global Breadfruit and NTBG’s Breadfruit Institute are dedicated to promoting the superfood and spreading it to areas of the world that need it most. “Every time we plant one of these trees, we’re reducing the susceptibility to famine and starvation in the country where the tree is going,” said Josh Schneider a horticulturist and partner to Global Breadfruit.
And then in a month you will see it in wholefoods where white people will pay $20 for it and all the people it was supposed to help will instead be making criminal wages so some disgusting dirty hipster can ignore whiteness and condescendlying look down on others for what they can afford to eat.
