Baby banana is known as the sweetest of all bananas, also called finger or lady finger banana. It offers the same benefits just like a regular banana and is native to Columbia. Banana is one of the healthiest and most popular fruit in the world, consumed by nearly everyone on earth daily.
These yellow-skinned fruits are ideal for health because they have a sweet taste that most people enjoy. Because of its petite size and sweetness, this little banana is loved by even children. Bananas are known to treat a variety of health conditions.
Due to their content in fiber, they help restore a normal bowel function. In addition, diarrhoea usually depletes your body of important electrolytes (of which the most important is potassium, contained in high amounts in bananas).
They also contain pectin, a soluble fiber (hydrocolloid) that can help normalize movement through the digestive tract. It is also a rich source of vitamins A, B, B6, B12, E and C. It is full of potassium, zinc, iron, manganese and magnesium.
Like other yellow bananas, the peel of a baby banana will turn from green to yellow when ripe. As with other fruits, select them according to when they will be eaten.
