Jackfruit – young green jackfruit specifically – has an especially similar consistency to flaky fish, particularly when combined with other ingredients to make Tofuna Fysh. It’s fibrous nature gives jackfruit a desirable texture while also allowing the fruit to take on any flavor that it’s combined with. Mixed with soy protein, celery, onions, organic seaweed blend, and vegan mayo, jackfruit is the perfect supplement to a deliciously balanced meal.
