Jackfruit is an extremely healthy food, packed with valuable free radical fighting anti-oxidants and vitamins, and a natural source of minerals including magnesium, potassium, zinc and iron. Jackfruit is a great unprocessed addition to a balanced plant-based diet, and its high fibre content also helps maintain a healthy digestive system.
Essential’s Jackfruit has been ethically sourced and grown organically by long-term farming partners in Sri Lanka. Essential’s established partnership with Sri Lankan fruit growers has developed over the past 12 years, supporting a network of 3,000 growers, ensuring local communities are supported and the traditional rural landscape is protected from mass scale farming. The fruit is grown, prepared and canned by this sustainable project.
