For millenia the seeds of the Maya breadnut tree, "Iximche", were the staple food of the greatest civilizations the earth has ever known. The "nutmeal" made from this towering rainforest giant nourished an empire that extended its influence from South America and throughout the Caribbean. Its complete "soy-equivalent" protein and extraordinarily high levels of vitamin C, B-vitamins, and calcium made it an ideal food for such a race of philosopher kings, scientists, mathematicians, and astronomers whose achievements and Iximche-covered temple continue to astonish the modern world.
Recently rediscovered by the outside world, this secret, sacred food of the Maya, still eaten in the rainforests of Central America by the Itza international team of indigenous people, rain forest researchers, ecologists, philanthropists, and of course, TJ Enterprises, the only distributor of Breadnut in the world!
Maya Breadnut comes from drought tolerant rainforest trees that don't waste water, have never and will never see pesticides or commercial fertilizers, and will not fall to the axe or the plough, to make way for inferior foods like corn, wheat, rice or pasture grass or soy (the number one cause of deforestation in many places today!). The seeds are gathered from the forest floor as they have been for thousands of years, in a healthy sustainable fashion to bring you the highest quality product possible while guaranteeing a good income to the tree-farmers and ensuring the safety of the forest in which the flour is grown.
