Many of us are familiar with the traditional healthy fruit, yellow bananas. We know bananas as a great source of potassium and are accompanied by their signature sweet taste, but they have a cousin that tastes even sweeter. Red bananas have a unique flavor, similar to yellow, but mixed with the taste of raspberries. They also provide more health benefits than the widely recognized, traditional banana.

Tory Tedrow, a registered dietitian and a certified nutrition support clinician for SugarChecked, says red bananas are sweeter tasting because they’re higher in sugar and calories.

“A red banana will have about 30 more calories and 8 grams of sugar more than a yellow one of the same size,” he told Medical Daily .

Ripe red bananas do not grow in the U.S., with many imported from producers in East Africa, Asia, South America and the United Arab Emirates. Yellow bananas account for 95 percent of the banana varieties sold, making red bananas one of the most mysterious fruits.

Forget about the super processed, often thought of as “traditional bread”. Look to the whole wheat kind, which is much less refined and often has many less calories. Make this easy shift by looking for whole wheat or whole grain next time you are at the grocery store. We bet that switching this out during holiday dinner won’t even get noticed by the rest of the family. They might even thank you.

Oats
