Looking to add more ‘Ulu to your life? The Hawai’i ‘Ulu Co-operative just recently launched its 16 oz. bags of Hawaii-grown ʻulu flour and 3 oz. cups of ʻulu chocolate mousse, which are now available online and at select grocery stores statewide. These ʻulu products make it easy, fun and delicious to add this indigenous Hawaiian staple to your diet! By eating ʻulu, you are contributing to Hawaii’s food security, sustainability, and cultural preservation, while supporting over 100 small-scale family farmers.
‘Ulu, or breadfruit, is a sustainable indigenous Hawaiian staple that can be incorporated into almost any meal! It is incredibly versatile and can replace starches such as potatoes and rice. Because of its deep cultural roots, amazing nutritional benefits, and the fact it’s one of the only staples on earth to grow on a tree, ‘ulu is a vital part of Hawaii’s food future.
Throughout the month of February, Hawai’i ‘Ulu Co-operative will be giving away two free cups of ʻulu chocolate mousse with every Elima Bulk Box purchase. This provides five pounds of locally grown Hawaii staple crops!
You can also find the mousse at various grocery stores throughout the state. On Oahu specifically, you can find it at select Down to Earth locations and Kokua market. More stores are coming online in March, so keep checking the product locator at eatbreadfruit.com to find a store near you that carries it.
