Benefits

Health

“We generally only get one-quarter of the fiber we need daily. The nice thing about jackfruit is that it’s a plant-based fiber from a whole food and not a fiber additive. It’s also high in potassium, which helps muscle function, hydration, and to maintain healthy blood pressure.”
— Jess Kolko, registered dietician for Whole Foods

“The jackfruit story is uniquely powerful because we need to resolve the fact that meat is the second largest contributor to global warming, [next] to the energy industry.”
— Annie Ryu, Our Founder/CEO as featured in National Geographic

“Research shows that [fiber] may reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and gastrointestinal problems like diverticular disease. It can even help you keep your weight in check by making you feel full.”
