Native Forest Organic Young Jackfruit is a delicious and nutritious vegan meat substitute. It is gluten free, soy free, USDA certified organic, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Jackfruit (also known as Jakfruit) has a meaty texture and mild flavor which makes it the perfect meat alternative. Its delicate flavor allows it to soak up seasonings so you can use it in numerous recipes to make it taste like chicken, pork, or other white meat. Also, as Jackfruit cooks it begins to flake and shred which makes it most popular as a pulled pork for BBQ recipes. The actual Jackfruit is a very large, heavy fruit (some as heavy as 120 pounds!) so buying Jackfruit online prepackaged in a can just makes sense. Native Forest takes care to package their Organic Young Jackfruit with the simple and natural ingredients sea salt and organic lime juice. Native Forest is committed to deliver convenience without compromise.
Jackfruit as Meat Alternative
Since Jackfruit has a mild taste and fleshy, meat-like texture it makes a great meat substitute in cooking and recipes. However, be aware that while Native Forest Organic Young Jackfruit does provide 2 grams of protein per ½ cup serving, Jackfruit in general is not a substantial source of protein. So, you can use Jackfruit in recipes as a meat alternative for flavor and texture but not as a nutritional replacement. This doesn’t deter vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike from enjoying Jackfruit in recipes such as barbeque sandwiches, tacos, Buddha bowls, stir-fry, salads, and more. Also, Jackfruit isn’t as chewy and tough as meat so it’s delightful and easy to chew. Many people prefer it over chicken or pork.
