Choosing bananas

The degree of maturity of a banana directly affects its nutritional properties. A green one consists mainly of starch, a glucose-containing polysaccharide that gradually releases energy into the bloodstream. It makes it difficult to digest, so it can cause flatulence.

A ripe banana, on the other hand, contains 90% sucrose and only 7% starch. Sucrose consists of glucose and fructose molecules. The latter is absorbed into the bloodstream much faster. In addition, it has a significant effect on blood glucose levels and insulin response.
