Benefits of Green Banana Flour
No chances of contamination – As banana plantations are always in all together separate area on bigger trees, the chances of cross contamination with other cereals are not there. Making it perfect for consumption by high-sensitive Gluten allergic consumers.
Heart health- It is an excellent source of potassium which helps to control the electrical activity of the heart. It also helps lower cholesterol and aids nerve and muscle activity.
Diabetic friendly- Since the young bananas are picked before they ripen, their sugar content never fully develops. Hence, they are lower in natural sugars.
Ideal for weight watchers- The resistant starch in green bananas slows the release of food through the gut. This slows the insulin response and prevents that sugar spike and consequent sugar crash. Thus, ensuring that we feel fuller for a longer period of time and avoid binging on unhealthy snacks in between meals.
Aids in digestion- The high content of prebiotic fibre in banana flour helps to support the good bacteria present in the gut, bowel, and colon. This, in turn, promotes a healthy digestion and bowel movement.
Inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria- RS II, (Resistant Starch subtype II) present in green banana flour, breaks down into short chain fatty acids & raises the pH level of the large intestine which creates adverse conditions for pathogenic bacteria while favouring the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Increases absorption of minerals– Especially calcium which can aid in preventing Osteoporosis.
Promotes colon health- Resistant starch increases faecal bulking which promotes colon health and also acts as a re-hydrating agent for those suffering from diarrhoea.
Gluten Free- Ideal for those suffering from gluten intolerance especially since it behaves very similar to wheat flour and serves as an ideal replacement in wheat containing recipes.
VEGAN – As it is a fruit powder, can be used in all Vegan diets.
