"We were looking for a grain-free diet for our customers. Ours is a holistic health centre, focusing on Ayurveda and naturopathy for our customers. We came across a ready-to-use jackfruit product that could be powdered and used as flour to make chapattis. Raw jackfruit-based food, after mixing flour to make roti, has become a part of the diet at our centre. Besides, people get a ‘psychological’ comfort with eating food items they are familiar with. “So, roti using jackfruit powder instead of wheat or maida is a good alternative and a practical solution. I’m extremely happy with the results. Raw Jackfruit is a very good alternative to a grain-based diet and must be brought to the dining tables of the health-conscious and diabetic patients."
