Jackfruit a complete health food for less cost


The jack fruit tree is believed to be indigenous to the Southwestern rain forests of India. It is widely cultivated in the tropical regions of Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brazil for its fruit, seeds, and wood. As in durian fruit, its outer surface is covered with blunt thorn like projections, which become soft as the fruit ripe. Its interior consists of orange-yellow colored edible bulbs. Each bulb consists of sweet flavored sheaths that enclose a smooth, oval, light-brown color seed.

ലോകത്തില്‍ തന്നൈ ഏറ്റവും വലിയ ഔഷധ മൂല്യമുള്ള ഒന്നാണ് ചക്കയും  ചക്ക പഴവും . ചക്കയില്‍  വളര കുറഞ്ഞ   അളവില്‍  മാത്രമായി   കലോറിയും കൊഴുപ്പും ഉള്ളൂ.  അതുകൊണ്ട് ചക്ക തിന്നാല്‍ "ചക്ക" പോലായി  തീരും  എന്ന പേടി വേണ്ട.

  • Jack fruit is made of soft, easily digestible flesh (bulbs) with simple sugars like fructose and sucrose that when eaten replenishes energy and revitalizes the body instantly.

  • Jackfruit is rich in dietary fiber, which makes it a good bulk laxative. The fiber content helps to protect the colon mucous membrane by decreasing exposure time and as well as binding to cancer causing chemicals in the colon.

  • Fresh fruit has small amounts of vitamin-A and flavonoid pigments such as carotene-ß, xanthin, lutein and cryproxanthin-ß. Together, these compounds play vital roles in antioxidant and vision functions. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining integrity of mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural fruits rich in vitamin-A and carotenes has been found to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

  • Jackfruit is also good source of antioxidant vitamin-C; provides about 13.7 mg or 23% of RDA. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful free radicals.

  • It is one of the rare fruits that is rich in B-complex group of vitamins. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid.

  • Fresh fruit is a good source of potassium, magnesium, manganese, and iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

In Kerala, two varieties of jack fruit predominate: varikka(വരിക്ക) and koozha(കൂഴ). Varikka has slightly hard inner flesh when ripe, while the inner flesh of the ripe koozha fruit is very soft and almost dissolving. A sweet preparation called chakka varattiyathu(jackfruit jam) is made by seasoning the varikka fruit flesh pieces in jaggery, which can be preserved and used for many months. Huge jackfruits up to four feet in length with matching girth are sometimes seen in Kerala.

Nic Wallenda crossed over Niagara Falls
Nic Wallenda, 33 year old man, crossed over Niagara Falls in June 2012. It was the first time that anyone had crossed right over the top of the falls. Wallenda battled high winds, and a huge mist that came from the water crashing below him. A crowd of tens of thousands of people packed onto the roadway by the falls, some waiting more than 12 hours to watch the historic performance and they erupted with cheers as Wallenda ran the last few steps to the safety of the platform anchored in Canadian turf.

“The most amazing part was when he was on the line and he was waving at the people,” said eight-year-old William Clements. The boy, who came with his family from Dresden, Ont., jumped up and down with excitement as Wallenda knelt down on the wire toward the finish, took a hand off his balance bar and waved.

Wallenda said the other big distraction was a producer from ABC television talking to him in an earpiece telling him to slow down. Placing one steady foot in front of the other, trying not to get distracted by the raging waters below, Wallenda was “in the zone,” he said. That is, until the ABC producer had a request.

“Actually, I had a producer in my ear saying, ‘You know what, you need to slow down a little,’” Wallenda said later. “I was like, ‘I don’t want to slow down. I want to get across to the other side.’”

“I’m so blessed to be in the position I am, to be the first person to be right here and to be the first person in the world who will ever be right here.”
ABC also made Wallenda wear a safety harness, which was the right move, the last thing you want to see on prime time television is someone falling to their death. “It’s breathtaking,” he said. “It was absolutely amazing to have that view.” “Normally I can focus on that cable underneath me, and as it moves underneath me I focus on that and my body follows it,” he added. “But there was no way to do that. If I looked down at the cable there was water moving everywhere, and if I looked up, there was heavy mist.”
