When to Eat a Banana

Brilliant Bananas: So versatile and full of essential nutrients that have a positive impact on your health 

We eat about 115 tonnes of bananas each year; only more tomatoes are consumed. They have the advantage of being available all year round and can be either eaten raw or as added flavours in baked products.




Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and supply vitamin B6, fibre and carbohydrate, and some vitamin C. Since they have a lower water content than most fruit, bananas typically have more calories as well as a higher sugar content compared to other non-tropical fruits.

What goodness is in a banana? Other than being rich in vitamin B6, bananas are a good source of vitamin C, dietary fibre and manganese.

The best time to eat bananas depends on your nutritional needs and preference.

During the banana’s ripening process, both the taste and nutritional value changes.

Less ripe banana; generally less sweet because the starch hasn’t turned to sugars.

Newly ripened banana; you will feel fuller for longer and the taste will be slightly sweeter.

Well-ripened banana; easier to digest, more sweet and will give you a slighter high energy boost


Did you Know ….

The inside of a banana skin can be used to calm an itchy mosquito bite - many people find that rubbing the bite with the skin helps to reduce irritation.
