Sabra Dipping Company has announced a new limited-edition flavor of hummus featuring jackfruit.
The new variety, Sweet & Smoky BBQ Hummus with Jackfruit and Smoked Paprika, will be available in grocery stores and delis across the U.S. from now until October, said the company.
Ryan Saghir, digital marketing director at Sabra, said the new variety was influenced by the changing tastes of consumers online.
“Everything starts in the kitchen at Sabra, and this incredible variety is no exception,” said Saghir.
“But now more than ever, this recipe was also influenced by insights derived from social media,” Sahgir added. “We relied heavily on influencer input and the conversations food enthusiasts are having online to inspire this delicious limited-edition variety. We are thrilled to bring a plant-based hummus with the delicious flavors of BBQ to the table and look forward to hearing feedback both online and offline.”
In addition to being vegan, the new hummus is gluten-free, kosher, and GMO-free.
“If you love the flavor of barbeque and are seeking more plant-based foods you can enjoy and feel great about, we think you will really want to try this hummus,” said Sabra brand manager Ruo Jing.
Jackfruit’s popularity has been rising in recent years. The fruit saw a 420% rise in interest on Pinterest last year, according to Food Dive. It’s a versatile ingredient that’s great for using as a unique meat alternative.
