It's as easy as 1-2-3
All you have to do to enjoy a jackfruit curry/stir-fry is to open the packets containing the jack and the gravy mix, add some water, mix on a low flame and then simmer for 5 minutes! As you were.
What's in the box?
All the boxes contain a pouch of shredded or chunked pre-cooked jackfruit along with a gravy paste if you've opted for one of the flavours.
How much is the shelf life?
The shelf life of both, the raw jackfruit as well as the gravy paste is upto 12 months.
Does it require refrigeration?
No, it does not require refrigeration if unopened. Once opened, it needs to be stored in the fridge.
Do we add preservatives to the jackfruit to get this long shelf life?
No, we don't use any preservatives or anything artificial. We get this long a shelf life from the packaging process we use for our jackfruit i.e retorting. A little fun fact: this form of packaging was developed to provide sustenance for astronauts who were off to space for extended periods of time, as once the food is retorted properly it becomes impervious to changes in the external atmosphere such as temperature, pressure and loss of gravity. It truly is a marvel of modern technology.
