As the number of people following vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian diets increases, so do the choices of meat substitutes on the market. While many of these products are made from familiar ingredients like vegetable protein blends, soy or seitan, The Jackfruit Company makes its meat alternative from jackfruit.
Jackfruit is known to have a taste and texture that's comparable to meat, while also having a composition that responds well to seasonings and sauces. For these reasons, The Jackfruit Company is able to offer flavored products that taste like BBQ, Tex-Mex and Curry.
In addition to offering a number of pre-seasoned varieties that make satisfying additions to burgers, tacos and stir fry dishes, the brand also carries 'Naked Jackfruit,' which leaves it up to the consumer to season the meat substitute to their liking.
