Grown in: Caribbean and Central America
Why We Love Them: Freeze dried bananas provide a burst of banana flavor and subtle sweetness to our muesli. Everyone knows bananas are high in potassium, but did you know they can also be a good way to get antioxidants, magnesium and vitamins C and B6 which can reduce swelling, protect against developing type-2 diabetes, strengthen the nervous system and help with production of white blood cells!
Sustainability Factors: We source our bananas from a family business that has an innovate freeze drying technology that retains the color, shape, flavor and nutritional value of the original raw material better than other drying methods. Therefore, no sweeteners or preservatives are needed. Bananas are native to Asia, not the Caribbean and Central America, although most of the worlds production occurs in the latter two regions. There are no commercially available bananas grown in North America so everything available must be packed and shipped over long distances.
