Brosimum alicastrum is a member of the Moraceae family of edible botanicals. The fruit from this tree contains an edible seed that may be dried or roasted, ground into powder and incorporated into baked goods. Although researchers have claimed that B. alicastrum seed powders have high nutritional value, there is very little published evidence to support these claims. Moreover, little is known about the functional properties of B. alicastrum seed powders in traditional baked goods. Thus, the purpose of this research was to determine the nutritional composition of B. alicastrum seed powder and the feasibility of incorporating this seed powder into a sugar snap cookie formulation.
