ORGANIC BANANAS, whole
Botanical Name: Musa acuminata
Ingredients: Dehydrated Bananas
Country of Origin: Mexico
Qualities: A fresh banana gets about 75 percent of its weight from water. The drying process removes about 96 percent of this water content, making dehydrated bananas a far more concentrated source of calories and nutrients than the source fruit. Ounce for ounce, dehydrated bananas are about four times higher in fiber, potassium, carbohydrates, sugar and calories than fresh bananas. They’re only slightly higher in vitamin B-6 primarily because it’s a water-soluble vitamin. Dehydrated bananas are actually about 20 percent lower in vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin that’s particularly sensitive to heat.
Storage: Keep in a cool, dry spot in a fully sealed container or bag.
