This study aimed to produce chips from jackfruit seeds. Specifically, it sought to determine the nutritional value of jackfruit seeds as chips. The general procedure was first done the collection of jackfruit seeds and materials needed for cooking and preparing the mixture like the pan, knife, bowl and the container. 100 jackfruit seeds were washed then boiled; the boiled seeds were peeled and pounded with the use of mortar and pestle. It was mixed with 5 cups of all purpose flour and 2 eggs then add a small amount water to make dough. The dough was rolled enough in order to make 30 thin sheets of dough. Based from the conclusion drawn, the researchers now recommended that the people must plant jackfruit tree on our own backyard; the researchers would also recommend that the researchers must do something to improve this study.

Introduction
Background of the Study
Global crisis is one of the major problem the country facing today. Food is very important to us in order to live healthy. So in this case people cannot afford to buy foods which are available in the market, so they prefer cheaper ones that don’t really have nutritional value. People are so much engaged taking their snack time in the morning and in the afternoon. Snacks are one of our habitual daily intakes from the 3 meals we are taking every day. Young and adults are fond of eating junk foods and we all know that these foods are full of unhealthy food ingredients. Eating so much will make one suffer from kidney stone, urinary infection and respiratory disorders. Jackfruit (Artocarpus Heterophyllus) commonly called “Langka or Nangka” is one of the favorite fruits eaten by many. The seeds are often times eaten when boiled. Since the people are losing appetite from the same taste of boiled jackfruit seeds the researchers thought of making it as a chips and alternative to junk foods. Statement of the Problem

This study aimed to produce chips from jackfruit seeds.
Specifically it sought to answer the following questions.
1. Is it possible to produce chips from jackfruit seeds?
1. Is there any nutritional value that we could gain by eating the jackfruit seeds chips? 2. Is there any significant difference between the jackfruit seeds from the commercial chips in terms of color, odor, texture and taste? Hypothesis
