THE MIGHTY JACKFRUIT

Jackfruits are a nutritional bonanza: high in protein, fibre (vital in digestion), potassium (to maintain blood pressure and heart health) and packed with vitamins A (for vision), B (to boost energy levels) and C (to boost immunity)– almost too-good-to-be-true.

The jackfruit has been grown in Sri Lanka for centuries and has been known as the nourishing tree of the people. The nutritional value and the taste is matched by the size of the fruit. This is a superb meat alternative that has been prepared lovingly in order to bring you the delicious taste of jackfruit.

Jackfruits aren’t just good for you; they’re good for the planet too. The trees that the jackfruits are grown on are, by nature, drought and pest-resistant so they require no pesticides, biological control or herbicides to ensure their optimum growth.
