Jackfruit is a fruit native to India and grows on a tree as part of the Moraceae plant family. It is well known for it’s distinctive, musky scent and thick, yellow flesh. Jackfruit could be described as a cross between pineapple and banana and is recognized for its nutritional value. It’s health benefits range from lowering cholesterol levels to aiding in healing wounds.
Our dried jackfruit makes a great addition to any snack or trail mix products, it can be used to create a unique ice cream base, or added to a grain dish to sneak in extra nutritional benefits. It also works well as a meat substitute because of its thick and fibrous texture.
