Upton’s Naturals, a company that developed pre-seasoned, heat-and-serve, unripe natural jackfruit for the US market, is expanding its lineup to include two new flavors: Thai Curry and Original.
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, Upton’s Naturals’ Original Jackfruit 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, GMO’s, and artificial flavors, and 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; they can open the door to new and exciting recipe ideas,” shared Upton’s Naturals’ founder, Dan Staackmann. “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!”
The Thai Curry and Original Jackfruit varieties join Upton’s Naturals’ Bar-B-Que and Chili Lime Carnitas Jackfruit, along with a lineup of flavored Seitan, including a new Classic Burger. Upton’s Naturals’ Jackfruit can be found in the refrigerated section at natural and specialty stores nationwide for an SRP of $4.99 per 10.6-ounce box and is also available for foodservice customers. The product is shelf stable and packaged in a retort pouch to maintain freshness.
