AGENCY OF RELEVANCE
Jackfruit is a hot new vegan ingredient from Southeast
Asia. It’s high in ﬁber and low in calories, and its texture
is similar to that of pulled pork. Some companies are
offering it in ready-to-eat formats: Upton’s Naturals
produces barbecue and chili lime varieties of seasoned
Jackfruit as a convincing meat substitute. In 2016
expect to see more Jackfruit on menus, and Jackfruit
derivatives, such as juices, puree, and soups.
People argue that when cooked,
Jackfruit has a similar
consistency to other meats, and
is a popular substation. They
also argue that it tastes better.
