What is Banana Blossom?
Banana Blossom is a large tear shaped fruit that grows at the end of a banana fruit cluster. It’s recently been acclaimed as the next best vegan meat substitute. It is similar to Jackfruit, which also originates from South East Asia.
Why go organic?
The global industrialised food system is made up of a handful of ‘mega-corporations’ dictating food production and distribution. Swapping support to organic farming methods allows a shift of power, giving the consumer a voice in how money flows through the system. Much of the mass, non-organic farming methods used in today’s food production use an unnecessary amount of ‘preventative’ antibiotics (as opposed to a natural method of managing livestock such as healthy diet, clean housing and rotational grazing).
Organic produce, like Biona Organic Sweet & Smoky Jackfruit, is as nature intended: fresh, vibrant and holding onto its vital nutrients. As an alternative agricultural system, organic farming is shown to be ‘more profitable and carries less risk of low returns’, This collaboration between humans and the environment maximises the natural properties of our planet, capitalising on the soil’s natural capacity for storing carbon. And by switching to organic, your 5-a-day counts for more goodness with recent studies showing ‘meaningful differences, with a range of antioxidants being “substantially higher” – between 19% and 69% – in organic food.’
