With a prolonged dehydration process at a controlled temperature, we managed to maintain all the extraordinary nutritional benefits of jackfruit in an ideal snack for a healthy fruit intake.
Dehydrated jackfruit pulp contains vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B5, B6, vitamin E, K, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium and zinc, among many other nutrients.

It contains many carotenoids such as β-carotene, which is an important antioxidant for human health. Carotenoids can be important for the prevention of various chronic degenerative diseases, such as cancer, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration. The carotenoids present in jackfruit are; translutein (24% to 44%), β-carotene (24% to 30%), neoxanthin (4% to 19%), 9-cis-neoxanthin (4% to 9%), and 9-cis -violaxanthin (4% to 10%).
Jackfruit also contains a good amount of dietary fiber, a fundamental component for the proper functioning of the digestive system and found only in foods of plant origin. Some of the benefits of fiber consumption are to lower blood glucose and cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of heart disease, reduce constipation problems, avoid the risk of obesity, colon and rectal cancer, hiatal hernia, hemorrhoids and appendicitis, among others.
On the other hand, the seeds, due to their characteristics, have been used in traditional Chinese medicine as a natural aphrodisiac. They are a source of nutrients like potassium, calcium, iron and are a great source of protein. All of this can help prevent premature ejaculation, increase libido, and prevent erectile dysfunction.
In addition to all this, jackfruit contains all 9 essential amino acids including lysine, which is not very abundant in vegan protein sources, so this fruit can be considered a complete protein source. The body needs protein to build muscle, repair tissue, produce enzymes, hormones, and other important biochemical processes. Plant-based proteins offer to be lower in calories and saturated fat than control the heart, are easier to digest and are free of antibiotics and harmful bacteria.
The name "jackfruit" comes from the name Chakka in Malayalam. Chakka comes from "Che-Kai" which means a group of green fruits (Kai) together. A fruit group is determined since a jackfruit in a tree has many other jackfruits attached to the core. The name changes to idi-chakka once the jackfruit is soft and to chakka-pazham once it is considered a fruit.
The name "chakka" is not for ripe fruit, but for green fruit. "Kai" means green fruit and ancient Ayurvedic literature indicates that jackfruit should be consumed in a state prior to ripening as it is considered richer in nutrients.
The biological name of the jackfruit is "Artocarpus". Artos means therapeutic bread and carpus means fruit. This means that jackfruit in ancient times was consumed as a nutrient-rich fruit and as a therapeutic food.
Our jackfruit meat is dehydrated in a state before its maturity, and
This is why its flavor is neutral and can be added to any stew without altering the flavor. We dehydrate it at low temperatures to preserve all its nutrients.
We have found a way to create a 100% natural product free of additives or chemicals and without any type of preservative as are all canned products, thus preserving the nutrients and unique flavor of our Jackfruit, a gift that the earth has for you.
As jackfruit is a fruit that comes from a tree, hundreds of them have been planted to obtain it, and this has contributed to improving air quality by generating oxygen. Just as an ecosystem is generated in which different species coexist.
Another advantage of fruit trees is that they absorb carbon dioxide, this is extremely important since CO2 is the second greenhouse gas that causes global warming.
Also, they help to regulate the temperature and are of utmost importance in the water cycle, as well as to avoid floods, since they absorb rainwater that has pollutants and dampens soil erosion.
We are committed to caring for the environment and we make sure to deliver a product that contributes to the conservation of species and the protection of animals. Every year 53 billion farm animals die for human consumption and at the same time, 150 species of wild animals die each day.
Because livestock is the main cause of deforestation, it is the activity with the greatest impact on the environment. This represents almost 30% of the habitable land area according to the FAO, and 70% of agricultural soils are used for the production of pastures for livestock.
