Green or unripe bananas are the highest source of naturally occurring resistant starch and offer important metabolic health benefits.
Banana Flour is a fruit ingredient that is naturally rich in resistant starch – a prebiotic dietary fibre.
Resistant Starch Green Banana flour contains potassium and magnesium and has a minimum of 70% resistant starch. Resistant starch is a fermentable, insoluble dietary fibre that delivers a wide range of digestive, weight management and metabolic benefits.
Most starches are digested very quickly. Some starches, known as resistant starch, are digested very slowly throughout the small intestine and end up reaching the large intestine. Resistant starch is becoming well known as a “good carbohydrate” for its strong health benefits.
Resistant Starch Green Banana Flour is carefully dried through a patent-protected process to preserve the high level of natural resistant starch and slowly digestible starch inherent within green bananas. The resistant starch is not isolated or extracted and labels as insoluble dietary fibre on the Nutrition Facts Panel. When replacing traditional flour, Green Banana Flour has a minimal impact on the colour or flavour of foods.
Green Banana Flour is used in supplements, bars, beverage powders and other foods.
