Jackfruit

FRUIT

Becoming more popular throughout the world, jackfruit is a large fruit grown in tropical regions. The taste is likened to other tropical fruits when ripe, but it can also be used in its unripe state as a more savory ingredient.

Jackfruit contains a few vitamins, but mostly consists of water, fiber and sugars. It also contains the phytonutrients: lignans, isoflavones, and saponins which are being studied for their effects.
