Edward & Sons Organic Unseasoned Shredded Young Jackfruit is native to southern India, where prolific trees flourish on family farms that are certified organic to USDA standards. Our Young Jackfruit is picked before its starch changes into sugar making it's neutral flavor and "meaty" texture a great meatless alternative. Most jackfruit contains preservatives and additives in a can, but this boxed jackfruit contains one ingredient only: jackfruit! Due to oxidation and no preservatives our jackfruit is brown in color, making it even meatier in texture and appearance. Suitable for low-sodium diets. Perfect for meatballs, patties and more!
