The Process of making raw banana flour – Green bananas are thoroughly washed then peeled, pulped, standardizing, concentrating and finally dehydrating all done at low temperatures in order to maintain its flavor , color and nutritional value at all times.

Nutritional Value :  It contains all the necessary nutrients required by the body- Calcium, Potassium, Vit B6, zinc, Vitamin C, Dietary fibers and Potassium. All written on the box. I think it’s a must try. 🙂

1.  Banana flour contains no sugar and also contains high resistance starch, hence can be consumed by diabetics too since the starch present in this flour improves insulin sensitivity.

2. Lowers Cholesterol, aids digestion.

3. The resistant starch in this flour gives us a feeling of fullness and satisfaction, reducing frequent hunger pangs and in the long run helps weight loss. I like this point the most heheehhehehe. I know many of you will like it too.

4. It is 100% natural without any chemicals and preservatives.

5. One idea in my mind says, If I would have added raw sugar instead  of refined sugar 🙂 I would have made it much healthier. What say ! The bite on lips, will not stick to Hips. Sounds great.
