ICAR-IIHR, Bengaluru has for the first time developed, Arka Halasuras, an enzyme clarified Ready-To-Drink Jackfruit beverage. Jackfruit pulp (soft or firm types) is liquefied using a cocktail of enzymes and serum is separated. The separated serum is diluted with water in a particular ratio to adjust the total soluble solids in the desired range and stabilized. This beverage has no added sugar or acid or preservative and has a shelf life of 6 months in glass bottle under normal room temperature. This is a first of its kind product from any research lab in India. The product is nutritious with 15-18mg /100 ml vitamin C; 2.1- 2.4 mg/100ml total carotenoids, 1.1-1.2mg/100ml antioxidants. The sweetness is mainly due to its inherent fructose and sorbitol. The in vitro studies showed the jackfruit to have anti-bacterial activity. One kilogram of fruit can yield 2.5-3.0 litres of ready to drink juice.
