It's a surprisingly great protein source
If you got super freaked out by the news that bacon causes cancer, breadfruit is a significant source of plant-based, high-quality protein. It carries a full range of essential amino acids, in a higher proportion than soy -- which is a big deal considering all the hype soy protein gets. The fruit can be ground into flour which, in a study that compared its properties to boring old wheat flour, reigned supreme in protein, fat, and ash contents. You're going to LOVE that ash content, for real. Seriously, though, that ash content is just a pleasant (kidding, really horrible), science-y way of saying breadfruit has a bunch of minerals in it. As an added bonus, it's gluten-free!
You'll load up on nutrients
Speaking of minerals and ash contents, if you're out of Flintstones gummies and in need of a healthy dose of vitamins, breadfruit's got you covered. You'll get antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber -- the health benefits are huge.
