Have mentioned about the benefits of eating fruit for losing weight. However, you may have heard that banana has fat.
Banana has fat, really?
Banana is an ideal fruit. They are cheap (I mean, in Malaysia). There is a good supply all year. They can be digested by almost everyone. Nutritionally, bananas have a lot to offer. They have a higher carbohydrate content than most other fruits (by weight), making them a good snack choice for endurance athletes.
They also provide a good source of potassium, which is vital for controlling the body’s fluid balance and regulating heartbeat as well as blood pressure.
Hey, you haven’t answered my question – Does banana contain fat?
OK, I hear you. Yes, banana does contains fat, but only 0.6 grams of fat.
The calorie content of bananas are low to medium. A small sized (peeled) banana contains about 80 calories. A medium sized banana contains about 100 calories and a large banana contains about 115 calories. (Compared with about 50 calories in Apple or Kiwi fruit.)
For every 100 gram of peeled banana, it has about 90 calories.
It is also interesting to note that the composition of carbohydrate calories change on ripening, the sugar levels rise and the starch levels fall as a banana ripens. It means that bananas are probably easier to digest when the more ripe and yellow the fruit becomes. One good place to store banana is refrigerator. In the fridge, the banana may turn brown/black. However, this is only a cosmetic change. The interior regions of ir will stay nice and fresh.
The calories in a banana are digested slowly and help supply the body with a steady source of energy. Bananas are great for an energy boost if eaten about an hour before physical activity.
In addition to the energy it provides, banana is said to provide benefits to people who suffer from anemia, blood pressure, constipation, depression, hangovers and even ulcers.
Moreover, it can can be used as phone.
So, let’s eat banana.
