Health Benefits of Dried Jackfruit
Dried jackfruit is high in dietary fiber, which nourishes the digestive tract and promotes a sense of fullness. It is also rich in immunity-boosting vitamin C to help protect the body against colds and viruses. Vitamin C also supports wound healing and is essential for healthy skin. Dried jackfruit is packed with antioxidants, the protective compounds that neutralize free radicals to prevent damage to healthy cells. The potassium content of jackfruit promotes cardiovascular health by regulating heartbeat and reducing high blood pressure. It’s also high in calcium and iron, which makes dried jackfruit an energizing snack that’s good for your bones and teeth.
The jackfruit (Artocarpus) belongs to the mulberry family. Native to Southeast Asia, the jackfruit thrives in tropical climates. Findings indicate that jackfruit was first cultivated in India as far back as 6000 years ago. The jackfruit tree produces the largest fruits of any fruit-bearing trees; jackfruits are enormous! The flesh is sweet and juicy, and the flavor is rich and tropical. The flavor is reminiscent of a cross between four different kinds of fruit: apples, pineapples, mangoes, and bananas. Jackfruit is easy to digest and plentiful in nutrients like antioxidants and vitamins.
