Banana Flour

Banana flour, prepared with green bananas has long been in use in Africa. The recent popularity of banana flour is mostly because of its gluten-free nature and resistant starch property. It has also been a popular part of various diets such as the paleo diet and other health trends that support a shift in flour choices from wheat to newer gluten-free options. Banana flour has a mild banana flavor, when uncooked, while the cooked version of this flour develops an earthy and even milder flavor. The texture resembles that of lighter wheat flour. It is also a good source of energy, proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber, as per the USDA.
