A REVIEW ON TROPICAL FRUIT: JACKFRUIT (Artocarpus heterophyllus)
Asian Journal of Advances in Research, Volume 13, Issue 2,
Jackfruit, a tropical fruit of the family Moraceae and genus Artocarpus, is usually preferred due to its subtle sweet taste and fruit flavor. However, this fruit has an impressive nutrient profile, which is comparable to shredded meat by Vegans and vegetarians. It contains a lot of fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, low fats, and protein (more than 3 gm/cup), making jackfruit unique from other fruits. Jackfruit also keeps for various medicinally important compounds, mainly antioxidants, carotenoids, flavanones, and vitamin C, and as a result, its consumption has a positive impact on human health. Various health benefits have been reported with jackfruit intake, such as immune health, preventing skin problems, cardiovascular disease prevention, blood sugar control, anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-ulcer, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. The present study attempted to review the morphology, production, consumption, nutritional value, and health-promoting benefits of jackfruit.
