Lantao Introduces Salacca to the Chinese Market
Submitted by Produce Report on
Lantao, headquartered in Shanghai, China has teamed with Java Fresh of Indonesia to introduce salacca to the Chinese market.
Salacca, is often referred to as “snake-fruit” due to its scaly outer covering. Though the fruit has a prickly outer skin, the inside meat is very sweet, and slightly acidic, not unlike a pinnapple in flavor. Its inner texture is crisp like an apple, but juicier, with a small inedible stone inside.
The fruit is high in fiber, potassium and pectin, so it is healthy as well as delicious to eat.
