Jackfruit - delicious substitute for meat
Jackfruit-Jackfrucht-Fleischersatz

Jackfruit – the New Great Alternative for Meat

The jackfruit belongs to the mulberry family and is cultivated in tropical areas such as Sri Lanka, India, Thailand or Vietnam.

It is the heaviest and largest tree fruit in the world and can weigh up to 40 kg and grow up to 90 cm long.

The fruit owes its name to the Malaysian word “Chakka”. This means “round” and describes its appearance.

The cultivation is done without any genetic engineering. In addition, significantly less water and energy is consumed than in the cultivation and processing of soy or peas.

FRUIT OR MEAT SUBSTITUTE? THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN RIPE FRUIT AND UNRIPE FRUIT

The ripe jackfruit is light yellow to golden inside and has a sweetish taste. The fruit flesh can be used, for example, for a tropical fruit salad.

The young, unripe Jackfruit is suitable as a substitute for meat and is therefore a very good meat and fish alternative for vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians. The unripe white, tasteless flesh is used, which is similar to chicken breast or lean pork in its consistency. It accepts spicy marinades and spices very well and thus provides an intense taste experience. The flesh retains its fibrous consistency even during cooking and frying and creates a meat-like feeling when eaten.

The flesh of the jackfruit can be processed in many different ways, for example:

  • Vegan Shredded
  • Veganes Chili sin Carne
  • Vegan Pulled “Pork”
  • Vegan Curry
  • Vegan Burger
  • As ingredient for vegan fish!

… and much more. There are no limits to the vegan cuisine!

Jackfruit is also a great source of fiber, starch, vitamins B6 and C and potassium. It is free of gluten, saturated fats and cholesterol.
