💚Healthy Tips💚 

Have you tried banana flour for your meals? It is getting one of the major alternatives of wheat flour.

Green banana(unripe) flour is gluten-free flour made from ground, unripe green bananas. Yellow bananas won’t work to make flour because they’re too soft and sticky. Green banana flour has some incredible benefits for your health, blood sugar, and digestion, so let’s explore this awesome gluten-free alternative. 

Fiber-rich unripe green banana flour contains resistant starch, a type of fiber that may aid in managing weight and type 2 diabetes. 

“As consumers are unlikely to eat sufficient amounts of vegetables and other fiber-rich foods directly, the supplementation of pasta with unripe banana flour can play an important role in achieving health benefits,” says Edith Agama-Acevedo, lead researcher at the Centro de Desarrollo de Productos Bióticos del IPN in Mexico. 

According to a study in the Journal of Food Science, published by the Institute of Food Technologists, supplementing spaghetti with unripe banana flour may be a healthy addition since banana flour contains antioxidants and fiber.😲

Excellent reasons for incorporating Banana Flour into your diet!😋
