Nutritional Info - Perfect for our bodies and our brains

One of the healthiest and most convenient foods that nature has to offer, it’s hard not to love bananas. There are fantastic benefits for practically every aspect of your health and lifestyle when you eat bananas.

Carbohydrate – for energy

With their tasty mixture of three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose - bananas score low on the glycemic index, making them an ideal food for slow, sustained energy release. That’s why they’re such a popular energy fix for athletes who need a good blood sugar boost to sustain their performance. Easy and quick to eat for busy kids and grown-ups, banana carbohydrates are great for recharging brains too, improving memory, focus and mood.

Potassium and Vitamin B6 – for brain power

Carbohydrates – the natural brain fuel in bananas – are boosted by potassium and Vitamin B6 to make bananas a super food for the brain. With tryptophan thrown in for a serotonin mood boost, bananas are the perfect snack to get you through the day, feeling and performing at your best.

Fat free – for your heart

With zero fat content, bananas will reward your heart with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and potassium, all nutrients considered beneficial for heart health and keeping blood pressure down. Their antioxidant powers will keep your cholesterol low and that’s good news for your heart too.

Fibre – for healthy digestion

It’s a common myth that bananas can block up your digestive system. Far from slowing down your digestion, the fibre in bananas is great for digestive health and a single banana provides about 10% of your daily fibre needs.
