Jack fruit is a fruit I love to have, eating a lot at once can be a bit cloiding for me but i always sit and eat it anyway because its so delicious. Some don’t like it because of the smell, sometimes its the things that don’t sell the best taste the best and is good for you.

Both the flesh and the seed of the jack fruit is healthy for you, they are rich sources of nutrients which helps in maintaining healthy skin and even the cardiovascular system. The flesh of the jackfruit is very high in fiber and the texture and taste makes it great for making jams, cakes candies and a variety of desserts.
Unripe jack fruit can be used in savory dishes and is cooked in spicy curries and gravies. People also boil the seed of the jack fruit and have it as a snack in come countries.

Jack fruit has a very high amount of nutrients like minerals, vitamins, protein, fat,fiber, carohydrates, phytonutrients and electrolytes. Its also a good source of calories but it does not contain any saturated fats or cholesterol. The vitamin B6 content in jack fruit fulfills about 25% of our daily requirement.

Although water is not a nutrient, the jackfruit is made up of 80% water. It is rich in anti oxidants which will help in the prevention of cancer aging and degenerative disease.
