Native Forest's organic jackfruit are grown in lush organic orchards on the beautiful island country of Sri Lanka. Big and prickly on the outside, young jackfruit's fleshy interior has a mild flavor and meaty texture that's remarkably similar to chicken or pork. As such, it makes an excellent vegan, soy, and gluten-free meat substitute in your favorite dishes and recipes. As it cooks, this jackfruit begins to flake or shred into the ideal texture for vegan "pulled pork" or "chicken" recipes. With a mild flavor, it's easily adaptable to whatever spices, sauces and seasonings you incorporate so that much like tofu, it provides a great versatile way to bring the texture you want for your meals without the animal ingredients. 14 oz. (400g) can is $4.89.
Ingredients: Organic young jackfruit, water, sea salt, organic lime juice
The jackfruit comes sliced in chunks and looks similar to quartered artichoke hearts. Once cooked, they can fall apart and become shreds. I‚Äôve been looking for non-soy meat alternatives lately, and this is wonderful! Pretty closely resembles the texture and taste of pork, especially with barbecue sauce. I‚Äôm looking for somewhere to bulk order this from.
