Green Banana Nutrition Facts

green banana

Green bananas are the same bananas you’d eat for breakfast or a snack if they were ripe, but in the Caribbean, they’re used as vegetables, mostly in savory meals. Green bananas may have additional nutrients and benefits not found in yellow bananas. They’re high in resistant starch and pectin, which are filling, beneficial to digestion, and aid with blood sugar control. On the other hand, some dislike green bananas because of their bitter taste and mushy texture.

Green bananas, also known as unripe bananas, have not yet converted all of their resistant starch into digestible sugars in the body.
