CHEAT SHEET: WHAT IS GUMBI GUMBI?
Aboriginal peoples have a long history of living off the land by harvesting their bush foods/Traditional Bush Tucker. Like many other cultures, all have traditions of harvesting edible wild plants. With the recent resurgence of interest in Gumbi Gumbi (Pittosporum angustifolium) Traditional Bush Tucker, more people recognise the full range of applications edible wild plants like this have when harvested and appropriately handled.
GUMBI GUMBI IS NOT A DRUG IT IS SIMPLY AN AUSTRALIAN BOTANICAL SUPERFOOD.
[Bush foods/Bush Tucker are being described as a super food because they are high in nutritional value. Nutritional value in mainstream fruit and vegetables has decreased over thousands of years because producers are more concerned with the water fat content, meaning the larger size and weight of a fruit or vegetable is selected by the grower to increase profit margins. In a comparison of a traditional hunter gatherer’s diet and a modern diet, Indigenous people were able to acquire similar levels of recommended nutrients in quantifiably less food (Smith and Smith 2003).]
