Food to Live® Certified Organic Banana Chips (Non-GMO, Unsulfured, Bulk) (10 Pounds)Category: Live Food BarBananas: History and Cultivation Everyone loves bananas, or, at the very least, people who don't enjoy this fruit are extremely rare. It has been this way for many centuries as they've been cultivated for a very long time. Surprisingly, many people don't understand just how extraordinary these plants are and how many types of them are available today. Bananas range in size, taste, nutritional value, and color, as well as their uses. In many countries, there is a distinction between dessert bananas, sweet fruits that people enjoy eating raw, and bananas used for cooking (plantains). As these fruits are grown in over 135 countries and exported to all the rest, one can say that bananas are one of the most popular edible plants in the world. Another interesting fact about them is that banana is actually a berry. Considering the size of some species' fruits, one could make a good argument on them being one of the largest berries. They definitely are one of the few common foods used in cuisines by the majority of cultures. It's no wonder as they've been cultivated in the Indonesian region for over 5000 years. However, even despite the widespread availability of fresh bananas all year round, banana chips are loved just as much as the fresh fruits. The reasons for this are that they are just as tasty as well as pleasantly crunchy. They are highly nutritious as well, and can add a unique flavor to various banana treats. They also keep very well, so you'll always have some on hand to sate your craving of the delicious yellow fruit if you buy Organic Banana Chips from Food To Live.
