Jackfruit canned Sainsbury's £1.20 - instore and online

Posted 15th Aug 2018
The deal here is that this was impossible to buy in my area. I discovered by chance that Sainsbury's sell it now.

This is used to make vegetarian version of pulled pork.
I'm presuming that others that don't live near cities also may have this problem. Apparently Sainsbury's was the first supermarket to stock canned jackfruit into the UK.

I'm not a vegetarian. I like the taste and texture of meat but very rarely eat it due to not liking the cruelty of the meat industry. ( It kinda spoils the meal when you think what this animal went through when I don't actually need to eat meat)

This may help some clicky
I have never heard of it but after googling it, I definitely want to try it. Sounds very bizarre but in a good kinda way
Brill! I’ve been looking everywhere!
Doubt it’s nationwide only in areas with high jackfruit lovers
And what area would be that?
Watch you don't choke on it. It tastes good, but best to cut into pieces before eating. Don't offer whole pieces to kids.
This is a fabulous fruit; it tastes a bit like a cross between pineapple and banana. Not sure what it's like tinned, but I'm definitely going to find out.
Thanks OP

It's in Devon. Not a vegetarian stronghold. I was surprised.

While there's a chance that people are reading this thread. I'll mention that Tesco stock some frozen stuff in the oumph range Oumph. The pulled pork substitute is very good, I got it for £2 rather than £3.50 (rip off price)

You've left me dangling here! "in the o . . ."?
I noticed this in my local (Stevenage) Sainsbury's today. I picked a can wondering what the it was!
Sounds like a interesting food.
Khaatul or kathal.....in Bengali
You'll find it 'fresh' sold in Asian stores primarily Bengali stores

The Pulled Oumph is very nice, as is the kebab one. Not a fan of the chunks though.

Because they find it more perverse to eat dead animals. Some may never have ate pork or other similar meat that substitutes are mimicking.

I had this tonight in Campfire Stew done in the Instant Pot. I've also had it like pulled pork in a bun. It's very nice.

'Many complain of stomach pain, bloating and flatulence after consuming this fruit. According to principles of ayurveda jackfruit is heavy to digest and stays in stomach for a long time due to its sticky nature. This causes digestion problems.'

ayurhelp.com/art…uit

'Jackfruits have immense health benefits. The benefits are delivered to our body when it is well digested. It helps to gain weight and strengthen the body. This fruit is rich in antioxidants and prevents ageing. It boosts immunity, helps to reduce blood pressure, prevents cancer and maintains the health of eyes. Indian and Chinese medicines recommend administering this to persons who suffer from erectile dysfunction.'

I think what the OP is saying is why try to imitate meat products, calling it vegetarian ”pulled pork” instead of just pulled jackfruit. Same with vegetarian ”sausages”, etc. Why try to falsely mimic meat products. Come up with original products and names instead of appropriating the enemy's as it were. Does seem somewhat perverse.

Vegetarian mycoprotein cylinders is difficult to fit on the box.

All depends on the size of the box I suppose and how large the lettering is.


Veg Cylinders would suffice though.
Will definitely try this in a fruit salad; forget the bun.

Lol. Can’t wait for my next Veg Cylinder sandwich.

In all seriousness though from a sales point of view, trying to market a whole new food (new name, shape, appearance) to people is difficult to say the least; I’d imagine. The concept of meat products is very much ingrained into most of us & many of us find it difficult to imagine a lot of meals without your staple piece of meat to round it off. These products merely act as substitutes for people that don’t want something to die to fill their belly.

I turned veggie a little while back, never thinking I would. With that said, I’m a rubbish vegetarian. I still love the taste of meat and the meals that come with it. If it wasn’t for stupid guilt, I’d be chomping on piggies all day long. The closest I can get to the real thing, I’ll take.

It specifies 'online' though, even if your local store doesn't stock it

Less perverse than eating a sentient being. Because we like the taste of meat, but not the cruelty involved in producing it.

I am quite sure, humans were eating jackfruit before anyone thought of pulling a pork.
