Ultra-Pure Single Ingredient
Plantains are a member of the banana family. Unlike bananas, plantains are usually cooked before eating them. However, green plantain powder can be utilized in uncooked and cooked recipes. In simple uncooked preparations, like smoothies and warm bowls or “colada,” green plantain powder offers the benefits of vitamins, fiber, potassium, antioxidants and resistant starch with a mild bland taste. The high content of starch allows it to be used as a substitute for corn flour and wheat flour. This powder packs all the nutritional benefits of fresh plantains with the added bonus of lasting longer and being shelf-stable for easy storage.
