Freeze-dried jackfruit, 200g
We are pleased to offer you jackfruit harvested when ripe in Thailand, and freeze-dried in small pieces in a 200g resealable bag.
The jackfruit is the largest fruit in the world (from a fruit tree), its shell is covered with picots and it can reach up to 40kg. It is part of the same family as mulberries: Moraceae. Its white to yellow flesh is eaten like a fruit, raw or cooked, while its large seeds are roasted or boiled (like chestnuts). When it is still young, its flesh is also used to replace meat in savory dishes.
Still little-known in France, it begins to reach vegetarian/vegan restaurants, mainly to imitate "pulled pork" or chicken breast.
Its rather unique taste is a mixture of banana and mango.
After the success of Durian, we wanted to offer you other varieties of fruit in freeze-dried format. We were won over by the intense fruit flavor that this partner offers to us, they are the best we have tasted so far! A real candy with a concentrated fruit flavor, just like its benefits.
The fruits are grown in a climate conducive to their growth (exotic fruits) and above all, they are picked at full maturity just before being freeze-dried. It is the guarantee of a quality product. Our supplier is not certified organic but the cultivation is and the fruits are certified "without pesticide residue".
Discover the unique taste of jackfruit in a crunchy version! A healthy alternative to candy for children - and adults alike.
If you want to know more about the freeze-drying process, watch this interview with Miguel Barthéléry:
This technique appeared in France at the beginning of the 20th century to dry food by sublimation: the product is first frozen, before proceeding to the evaporation of its water under vacuum. Thus, water passes directly from a solid state to a gas without passing through the liquid state! Because there is no heat intervention, freeze-drying retains the volume, appearance and all the benefits of the food.
¤ Like most fruits, jackfruit contains many phytonutrients that prevent the onset of cancer. It contains in particular C vitamin, lignans, isoflavones and saponins which prevent the production of cancerous cells and fight against stomach ulcers.
These antioxidants are also very good allies of the immune system, they help protect our body against free radicals.
¤ Studies show that it has an anti-inflammatory effect. It contains flavonoids which inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory mediators.
¤ The jackfruit makes the skin young and beautiful: thanks to the A and C vitamins it contains, the jackfruit participates in the production of collagen. By protecting the blood vessels and keeping the tissues of the body healthy, collagen helps the skin to stay firm, and therefore slow down its aging.
¤ The jackfruit also has a very beneficial effect on blood pressure. Indeed, the potassium and magnesium it contains help regulate heart rate and maintain blood pressure at normal levels. It could therefore help those who suffer from hypertension.
¤ Energy booster, it contains B3 vitamin or niacin which is involved in the nervous system and the creation of various lipid derivatives (such as bile salts, steroid hormones). This vitamin is also known to repair damaged DNA. An essential for a healthy body.
¤ The iron contained in the jackfruit prevents anemia and helps good blood circulation. This study summarizes all these points.

Okay not great
Not excellent, to be honest, but this may be due to the nature of jackfruit when freeze dried... Durian and most fruits taste fabulous after the freeze drying process, but this jackfruit is only rather okay, so if you want to enjoy the flavour of jackfruit it is fine, but do not expect something in the very good category...
