Brief description:

Dried jackfruit (kanoon or Indian breadfruit).

  • without sugar, preservatives and dyes
  • 100% organic

The latest technologies made it possible to preserve not only the taste and unusual aroma of jackfruit but also all its useful properties.

The scientific name of jackfruit is Artocarpus heterophyllus. This is a tropical fruit that is grown in Asia, Africa and South America. It belongs to the same plant family as figs and mulberries.

What does jackfruit taste like?

The pulp is yellow, fibrous, aromatic, smells like a banana, tastes like something between mango, pineapple, peach and banana. Along with the smell of exotic fruits, the bouquet has a light, almost imperceptible shade of artificiality, close to the smell of acetone (if you have ever tried very ripe bananas or melon – this shade is well known to you).

Ripe fruits contain from 30 to 40% edible pulp, they are very nutritious and contain about 40% carbohydrates (starch) – more than in bread. That’s why (and because of its cheapness) jackfruit is called “bread for the poor” in India. The seeds are also nutritious and contain 38% carbohydrates, 6.6% proteins and 0.4% fats; they are most often roasted and eaten like chestnuts.

Use in cooking
  • Dried jackfruit can be used as a delicacy or added to various desserts and ice cream
  • add to sweet and salty cereals, curry or stew
  • prepare an interesting filling for pies
  • stuff them with chicken, which will give the meat an exotic spicy aroma and sweetness

Fresh, ripe jackfruit has a sweet tropical fruit flavor that is good as a snack or added to sweet dishes. This is a healthy dessert on its own or in a smoothie. Ripe fruits are eaten fresh, made into marmalade, jelly, and candied.

When unripe, jackfruit has a neutral flavor that pairs well with spicy dishes. You can use unripe jackfruit in vegetarian curries and in place of tofu or chickpeas. But jackfruit’s biggest claim to fame is its ability to imitate barbecued meat.

Jackfruit’s chewy texture makes it a good vegan substitute for pork or chicken. It has less than 3 grams of protein per cup of product, much less than meat. Keep this in mind when considering protein sources in your diet
