            The results of this study showed that the 20 food products which used jackfruit seeds as substitute for other ingredients had and average of 10.50 Bath lower production cost when compared between the costs of original recipes and the jackfruit-substituted recipe. The substitution added value to the jackfruit seeds, which otherwise would be discarded as food waste. The product that determined the most value-added was preserved jackfruit seeds (Med Khanoon Choeam) (59.07 percent) while Khanom Co determined the least value-added (1.92 percent). According to 1,000 consumers’ satisfaction of those products, it is indicated that the consumers expressed high to very high satisfaction with the products’ look, color, smell and taste ( = 3.66-4.80).
