Jackfruit has been recognised as a fantastic substitute for meat over the last few years and has become a staple in many vegan and vegetarian diets. Asda will also be launching Banana Blossom, the latest plant-based alternative to excite customers. The Banana Blossom, which grows on the banana tree, was originally a popular ingredient in South Asian cooking as a substitute to fish due to its flaky texture. Both tins are packed with nutrients and a source of protein are the perfect addition to your supermarket shop!

The Jackfruit and the Banana Blossom tins are available now for £1.20 and £1.50 respectively. Perfect for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, or for those wanting a more flexitarian diet.

An Asda spokesperson said: “We’re always looking at ways to diversify our product range and giving options for all, and the Jackfruit and Banana Blossom tins are great and convenient cupboard staples for our customers, where they can be used in an array of dishes.

Asda customers can now experiment with a variety of dishes including burgers, curries and even fake fish and chips, the possibilities really are endless with these products”.
