FAQs about red bananas
Red bananas offer many of the same health benefits as yellow bananas. They provide an array of essential nutrients and may aid immune systems, digestion, and heart health. Generally, red bananas have 8 more grams of sugar and 30 more calories compared to yellow bananas of the same size. That being said, red bananas score lower on the glycemic index than yellow bananas. This means that red bananas may be a better option for people who want to reduce their cholesterol levels and maintain a healthy blood sugar level.
A small red banana (about 100 grams) has 15% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and 11% of your daily value of potassium. The red-orange pigment in red bananas also provides beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A, which is essential to eye health and the immune system. The high fiber content acts as a prebiotic, feeding beneficial probiotic organisms.
You can store a red banana the same way you would a yellow banana. If you want to keep ripe bananas, be sure to take them out of any packaging, as the banana skins produce a gas that speeds up the ripening process. Store your bananas at room temperature. You can use a few tricks to slow down the ripening process, such as pulling each banana away from the bunch and wrapping the stems of one in plastic wrap.
If you can't get to your banana before it becomes overripe, you can put it in the freezer. You should peel any banana you put into the freezer, as trying to peel a frozen banana is problematic. You can keep bananas in the freezer for several months to be used for a baked good or smoothie later.
