National, November 2022: Time to get your hand on some delicious and nutritious sausages, but with a vegan twist. Wakao Foods is a Goa-based sustainable startup that caters to ‘Ready to Cook’ and ‘Ready to Eat’ products in the Indian Market. Wakao’s current jackfruit meat offerings i.e., Hot & Spicy & American Herb Sausage are ethically sourced, hand-picked from farms, and hygienically manufactured. Because of its versatility, meat-like texture, and nutritional value, jackfruit has been an obvious product choice (high in fiber, low in calories and fats). All Wakao products are free of preservatives, have a one-year shelf life, and do not require refrigeration.
Wakao Foods, a Goa-based Sustainable Start-up gives your taste buds a much-needed respite from the traditional vegetarian protein options available across India and USA. After extensive traveling, in search of the superfood, we discovered that jackfruit is truly the jack of all tastes. It may be the delectable treat you seek, but it is not your typical sausage. The taste and texture are identical, but only because of the goodness of our Super Jack. Wakao’s Hot & Spicy & American Herb Sausages are made with soy protein and the richness of Jack Fruit. This tasty, ready-to-cook option is a new source of balanced nutrition for vegetarians and health-conscious eaters looking to spice up their meals.
We would dearly love to spread Wakao worldwide. Simply to extol the virtues of the jackfruit and to promote healthy and sustainable living. In this way, we can cater to all the people who are aware of the healthy ingredients in the food on their plates and are aware of its nutritional content. We are scheduled to export our products to the USA in November 2022. We’ll be accessible across the USA. As of January 2022, 10% of adults in the US over the age of 18 identify as vegan or vegetarian. According to a survey, there are around 1470 plant-based eateries in the US. We aim to reach those who are concerned about their health, those who are transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, and of course vegans. Our products can also be consumed by vegetarians who desire to eat animal products but are unable to do so for moral reasons. To quell their curiosity about whether vegan meat is superior to normal meat, meat eaters can consume our products. In essence, we can serve everyone for a variety of reasons.
Jackfruit is packed with nutrients. One cup (165 grams) of carbohydrates accounts for about 92% of the calories, with protein and a negligible amount of fat rounding out the composition. Additionally, jackfruit has a fair quantity of fiber and practically all the vitamins and minerals you require. Which makes it the perfect food to support your health and dietary lifestyle.
Rounding out its nutrition profile, Wakao products are fortified with protein and dietary fibers, making them a one-of-their-kind superfood. These vegan sausages, with natural flavor, ethically sourced and hand-picked from farms, and hygienically manufactured, are the best option for giving everyday diets more variety. It is suitable for curries, tacos, kebabs, burgers, and a variety of other dishes as it is easy to prepare and can be incorporated into a wide variety of cuisines.
