Summary: Chemical and physico-chemical properties of raw and solid-state fermented jackfruit seed powders (JSP) were determined and compared. With 2.70 × 108 CFU•ml-1 Lactobacillus sp. at 37 °C, 80% initial moisture content, pH 7 and 120 h of fermentation, crude fat and saccharides decreased by 35.8% and 2.6%, respectively, while total dietary fibre remained unchanged. Swelling, water holding, water retention, oil holding and organic molecule absorption capacities decreased by 46.4%, 50.6%, 34.6%, 16.5% and 31.5%, respectively. Solid-state fermentation changed the chemical and physico-chemical properties of jackfruit seed powder. This information is important in exploring and determining the feasibility of incorporating raw and solid-state fermented JSP in food applications.
