How to Choose Bananas
The concept of “the right banana” is very nominal, because much depends on the taste preferences of a person. For example, some people prefer small sweet fruit (baby), other like larger ones. Ripe bananas are much sweeter. But, for this reason, for example, diabetics should choose the unripe fruits but not completely green. For children it is better to choose bright yellow ripened bananas, because the starch in them has turned into sugar, so the child’s organism will digest this fruit easily.
However, there are a few details to pay attention to:
- – Tail condition of the fruit. It should not be rotten or moldy.
- – Dents and damage on the skin. The pulp can be spoiled by them.
- – Small brown dots on the surface of a banana – it’s a sign of maturity of the fruit.
- – Fully green bananas cause digestive disorders.
If you have bought unripe fruits, do not worry. They can be brought to desired “condition” in a dark place, for example in the kitchen cupboard, just a couple of days.
