The Banana and its peel ...




Banana is one of the best foods for a healthy and balanced diet, although many people still look for caloric value rather than paying attention to their nutritional value.
 
Banana is more caloric than the vast majority of fruits, it is a fact, but banana is also healthier than a good portion of the fruits we eat daily.
 
Although there is still some skepticism about this food, whether for its sweetness or fear of fructose levels, the truth is that bananas should be seen as a 'superfood' especially if we include the peel.
 
The banana peel is so rich in insoluble fiber that it is an excellent alternative for those looking for a greater sensation of satiety and, therefore, a greater ease in controlling the appetite.
