Chicago-based Upton’s Naturals expanded its lineup ofpre-seasoned, heat-and-serve, unripe natural jackfruit to includeThai Curry and Original varieties.
Blending creamy coconut milk with fragrant lemongrass and earthy cumin, Upton’s Naturals’ Thai Curry Jackfruit brings Southeast Asian taste to a meat-free shredded chicken.
For those looking to add their own flavor profiles to plant-based recipes, the Original Jackfruit kind contains only pure jackfruit, making it easy for at-home cooks to get creative with this incredible fruit.
Like all of Upton’s Naturals’ Jackfruit products, these new varieties offer a good source of fiber, are completely free of cholesterol, gluten, soy, oil, GMOs and artificial flavors and are 100% vegan.
“By bringing these exotic and classic Jackfruit flavors to the natural food market, we hope to show people that not only do delicious, real-food meat replacements exist, [but] they can [also] open the door to new and exciting recipe ideas,” says Dan Staackmann, founder. “The bold Thai Curry flavor was inspired by our trips to Thailand, where we source the jackfruit from a network of family farms, while the Original Jackfruit was designed to serve as an alternative to fresh, unripe jackfruit, which is extremely difficult to find and prepare. We’re excited to share these launches with vegans and non-vegans alike.”
