Bananas are the perfect snack, as they contain loads of fiber, which is good for your digestion. They also contain potassium and other vitamins and minerals. Some people try to avoid bananas, as they are rich in carbs and calories, more so than other fruit. Bananas also lack vitamin C, which other fruits do have. However, bananas are a great snack due to their fiber, especially when you work out. Bananas can prevent muscle cramps and carbs give you a healthy energy boost.


First of all, the strings have a name; they’re called ‘phloem bundles. The phloem in a plant ensures the transport of nutrients throughout the entire plant, from the leaves to the actual fruit. Phloems are important factors in the growth and health of a plant. So the strings aren’t just useful to the banana itself, they’re also completely edible!
