The starch content
Most of the nutritional content of bananas is starch. Over 90% of the starch of ripe bananas has been converted to sucrose, fructose and glucose, so it tastes sweeter. Compared with unripe green bananas, the water-soluble fiber content of ripe bananas is also relatively high, and the effect of laxatives is more significant.
Because green bananas have a relatively large amount of starch, it won’t become sweeter until the amylase converts starch into small molecules of sugar. Therefore, green bananas have lower sugar content and require a longer time for digestion and absorption. However, it can help blood sugar balance and make you feel fuller after eating.
The starch in green bananas is not easy to be absorbed by the human intestinal tract. Thank to such a characteristic, scholars gave this type of starch a name, called resistant starch. Resistant starch helps stabilize blood sugar for our metabolism and can be used as nutrients for intestinal cells so as to protect the intestine mucosa.
Bananas are also high in magnesium, which can help calcium absorption. What’s more, it can maintain bone health, help prevent arteriosclerosis, and promote energy metabolism. 100 grams of bananas contains 32 milligrams of magnesium, which is equivalent to three kiwis.
In addition to minerals, the vitamin B6 content of bananas is also very high. It not only can protect the health of mucous membranes and skin, but also prevent hypertension and anemia. Banana also contains B1, B2, which can easily ingest the vitamin B group that improves metabolism and energy conversion.
