What’s behind the name KARANA?
Thanks for asking – we love the name KARANA and it’s as packed with meaning as our products are with flavour. It actually comes from a Sanskrit word that means “doing” and a Balinese phrase that refers to achieving balance with nature as a route to prosperity. It’s a word that has taken on a variety of forms and meanings across South and Southeast Asia. KARANA represents our goal to empower and encourage everyone to take action, however small, to bring more balance back to our food systems. It also represents our commitment to blending innovation and tradition, using technology to improve what we already have available and celebrate food in its natural form.
Where is KARANA based?
We’re proud to call beautiful Singapore our home. Just like us, the city is young, hungry and always innovating.
Is KARANA good for you?
We like to think our products are as good for the body as they are for the soul. Our goal is to make food you can feel good about eating more of and while we’re not perfect, we think you’ll agree that compared to meat, there are lots of benefits of eating KARANA – including:
- High in fibre
- Low glycaemic response
- Cholesterol free
- Low fat and saturated fats-free
- Low calories
- Minimally processed and short ingredient lists
Where are KARANA products made and where are your products sourced?
Our hero ingredient, the jackfruit, is currently sourced from small-holder farmers in Sri Lanka, then the value-add manufacturing steps are carried out in Singapore.
