Not ours! We use green Saba bananas, which have 75% less sugar than the ripe Cavendish bananas that you’re used to eating from the grocery store. Most of our Kettle Cooked ‘Nana Chips and Grain Free Snack Mixes contain only 1g of total sugars per serving.
According the International Glycemic Index Database, any foods with a GI value under 55 are considered Low Glycemic. Fully ripe Cavendish bananas are listed with a GI value of 51 (still low glycemic). Green bananas are listed with a value of only 30.
Another wonderful benefit of our green bananas are that they are high in resistant starch, which have a prebiotic effect. Before bananas ripen, they contain mostly resistant starch (which will convert to simple sugars if allowed to go thru the ripening process). Studies show that resistant starch can lead to better digestive health.
