Originally indigenous to India, jackfruit is a versatile tropical fruit with a sweet flavor. “Jackfruit is the wellness world’s next big thing,” claims Hayim.
“Vegan restaurants caught on early, with the creation of jackfruit tacos, using the meaty consistency of the jackfruit as the filler. The fruit is deliciously sweet, rich in vitamin and minerals, and contains no saturated fat or cholesterol. While most B vitamins are found in non-plant sources, jackfruit is rich in vitamin B6, niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid, which all play an important role in helping the body in converting food to energy.”
