What is breadfruit?
Breadfruit is a starchy tropical fruit that tastes like a potato! Breadfruit is a nutrient dense powerhouse, packed with complete protein, vitamins, and antioxidants!
Is the pasta vegan?

What does the pasta taste like?
Our pasta tastes similar to whole grain pasta. It has a lovely neutral flavor. Everyone that tries it says it tastes just like regular pasta!
Does the pasta have good texture?
Yes! Our pasta has an amazing al dente texture. It is not mushy and holds its shape, even in soup! It cooks in just 6-7 minutes!
Is your product sustainable?
Yes! Our pasta is very sustainable! Breadfruit trees need no irrigation and don't need replanting for 60 years. In turn, more trees are planted, which is good for the environment, and the soil is not degraded of nutrients from constant re-plantation. The farming of breadfruit provides jobs to local farmers on the islands. We feel it's our responsibility to future generations and to the planet to create sustainable products. Our packaging is recyclable :)

Our pasta has 13 g of complete protein per serving! Breadfruit contains all 9 essential amino acids to construct a complete protein so the body can use it functionally to form muscles, repair tissue, and transport nutrients. All protein is not created equal.
Why is your pasta healthy?
The health benefits of breadfruit are outstanding! It's literally classified as a SUPERFOOD, or superfruit as we like to say. It's full of vitamins like A and D, minerals like calcium, potassium, zinc, magnesium, and iron. It's loaded with antioxidants, omega 3, 6, 9, and it's a complete protein! We make no health claims, but research shows antioxidants reduce inflammation, and create a youthful appearance... just sayin.

Can Kids eat PASTA FROM THE JUNGLE?
Yes! We designed PASTA FROM THE JUNGLE with kids in mind. We are motivated by improving nutrition for future generations, and what better place to start than a better for you pasta made from a superfood?! Parents do not have to feel guilty when their kids ask for mac n' cheese now.
What is the shelf life?
2 years from the production date, check the bag for the best by date.
You got it! Make sure that boil is rolling, add a little salt or oil, then plop in the pasta. Slight foam may occur (totally normal). All stoves cook a little differently, so we recommend a taste test at 5 min. The average cook time for al dente is 6 minutes, 8 min and you've probably gone too far. Strain, rinse, and get creative!
Do you ship internationally?
Not yet, we're workin' on it.
What if I accidentally put the wrong address?
Just send us an email and we'll make it right.
