Most experts often recommend not eating jackfruit during pregnancy. The thought behind this is that its consumption during pregnancy can cause a miscarriage. However there is little scientific evidence to prove it.
However, it is advisable to eat it in moderation as it contains powerful laxative properties that lead to diarrhoea. This in turn could affect the health of the foetus.
In small amounts, on the other hand, it can actually prove to be beneficial because it is full of nutrients. Some of its advantages are:
- It is rich in vitamin A which helps in better eyesight and proper cell production during pregnancy
- It is rich in Vitamin B3 that not only boosts immunity but also regulates hormones
