Green Banana provides natural resistant starch which resists digestion in the small intestine and reaches the large intestine. It is a prebiotic, insoluble dietary fiber, that feeds the healthy bacteria and other organisms (called the microbiota) within the large intestine. As one of the most researched nutritional ingredients on the market, natural resistant starch is being linked to numerous metabolic and digestive health benefits.
Whole green banana flour is made from fresh picked green bananas, which have up to 70% resistant starch. As bananas ripen, the starch is converted to sugar. By the time bananas get to the grocery store, they might have only 7-15% resistant starch. When they develop brown spots, they might have only 1 or 2% resistant starch remaining. Numerous clinical studies have investigated resistant starch from under-ripe or green bananas and they have confirmed elevated levels of resistant starch in green bananas and in green banana flour. This benefit of natural resistance starch supports many health benefits such as blood sugar balance, appetite control, digestive health, weight management and regularity.
