hello,

my first post.  googling 'bananas resistant starch "how ripe" ' brought me to this thread.

anyways, so has anyone figured this out yet and can post their reference?  I just ate a banana so green, it was tough to do.  I pretended it was a dry cucumber, but then theres that nasty butt smell bananas have which becomes even more prevalent when theres no other flavor or taste there

anyways... I guess im wondering if eating it that green has any benefit in regards to resistant starch content compared to say a slightly green or barely ripe banana... and by how much?

terms even in sholarly articles are not clear...and likely many of these blog type articles are just copied info from another news source...

if no one knows for sure, a guess will do.  my guess would be an extremely unripe banana has significantly higher RS content than a greenish almost ripe one, but perhaps my guess is off ( hope its off ) and the RS benefits of eating a butt tasting unripened banana are not that much greater than a slightly green one....?

funny, i like unripe bananas, amber like yellow and black dot ones, but who knows which ones are actually better for us lol.

Emily like half a banana, and she is usually the only one with a bit of wit.

It usually takes me 3-5 days to eat an unripe banana.

Mmm... This post is really interesting for me.  My partner and I (both Hunters) have had a hiatus on eating bananas, after having them almost daily in our morning smoothie, because of suspected mucous producing properties.  Even though they are a diamond on both our Swami reports, we thought we'd experiment on cutting them out.  My asthma has been so much better since eliminating them - no more running/blocked nose and breathing is much better too.  I suppose we're all different huh.  I wonder if green ones are different - being from Queensland (Australia) originally where they're grown in abundance, I never really liked them under ripened as we could always get them fresh and not artificially ripened so I always like them ‘just right’.

You know how astringent the banana skin is - I saw a woman eating the whole green banana, skin and all.  I don't understand how someone can do it, but more power to her.


I never even saw a monkey do that!!

Good to hear Andy!! I do wonder anyway re the gasses they spray to ripen fruits Cannot be good for us??!! In fact fruit generally these days is so different to what it used to be...deliberately higher fructose levels etc??!!

& re the woman who ate the banana skin & all...I read a story recently about a person who somehow didn't know you had to peel them??!! Perhaps it was that woman
