What is ʻUlu Flour?

‘Ulu flour is made from breadfruit, a starchy tropical fruit that grows on trees brought to Hawai‘i by Polynesian voyagers more than 1,000 years ago. Today, ‘ulu is a largely underutilized crop that produces an abundance of nutritious fruits with extremely low shelf life. At the same time, Hawai’i now imports nearly 100% of its staple foods, including virtually all of its flours. Given the need to increase food security and decrease food waste, drying and milling breadfruit into flours offers a promising way to extend the fruit’s shelf life while creating a local, sustainable, and high-quality staple for local consumption, with significant export market potential.
