A mono-ingredient & unprocessed #SuperFood
Its contributions are multiple to combine form & vitality with greed. The banana is a fruit, famous for being rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals & amino acids which makes it a resource food for active days ..., but that's not all.
Indeed, this concentrated form of dried banana without cooking really makes it possible to talk about superfood, both by the benefits for the organism and nutritional, without forgetting the energy aspect.
A healthy food as a probiotic to maintain the balance of the intestinal microbiota
A host of health benefits through its prebiotic content (to be distinguished from probiotics).
Dried bananas of the "Kouey-nam-wa" variety contain Fructo-OligoSaccharides (FOS or even oligofructose) which could be described as non-assimilable sugars during digestion. We then speak about prebiotic substances present in the diet, not to be absorbed by our digestive system, but to feed the bacteria that make it work (for this reason, oligofructoses do not make you fat). Thus, FOS are major prebiotics for the proper functioning of the intestine & colon. They also intervene to strengthen and nourish probiotics (the "useful" bacteria that make up the intestinal flora), thus participating in the balance of the whole called microbiota.
Another remarkable prebiotic contained in dried banana nectar : inulin which is a kind of fiber not digested by the body (meaning that it arrives as it is in the intestine and therefore does not make you fat). It is then digested by the bacteria of the intestinal flora by producing beneficial substances such as fatty acids & gases (!).
Among all the foods which contain inulin, the banana is not at the head but it is doing the job !
This is where the concentrated form by evaporation and without cooking the dried banana nectar makes the difference. On the one hand, while cooking degrades a large part of prebiotics, dried banana nectar is a means of preserving the intake of fresh fruit.
On the other hand, the order of magnitude speaks volumes : 1 teaspoon is equivalent to 3 bananas. Do understand it is not necessary to consume liters where a sandwich in the morning is sufficient.
#Sport & nutrition. An ultra-concentrated intake: 1 spoon = 3 bananas
For athletes, in search of an unprocessed energy food, dried banana nectar represents an advantage for several reasons :
- Naturally rich in fast sugars but without added sugars
- Easily assimilated because mono-ingredient, without fat and uncooked
- Rich in vitamins B, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 & C, in calcium, magnesium & potassium
- Concentrated in its shape & ergonomic in its bottle
Finally, for hikers who monitor the weight of the backpack during bivouacs, the dried banana nectar is compact and consumed on bread without cutlery. Our customers appreciate this ergonomic and practical aspect.

#Gastronomy : think banana in your dishes !
On a daily basis, dried banana nectar will quickly find its place in the family.
Whether it is to vary the style of breakfast on a slice of bread, to replace an industrial spread with an unprocessed and mono-ingredient product or to sweeten a hot drink by the sole effect of fructose, it has everything.
Vegan honey ? It is also a honey substitute for people who are vegan or allergic to bee products.
In addition, it does not contain gluten or lactose.
In the kitchen, there is no shortage of uses either. Sweet and savory dish, salad dressing, alternative to mayonnaise on an avocado, tropical flavor on a pancake or waffle, pastry coating, on hot goat cheese or on a scoop of ice cream : long live the audacity!
We are often asked if bananas come from organic farming. No, they are not certified organic.
These are KoueyNamWa variety bananas grown without fertilizers or pesticides. Very widespread throughout Thailand, these bananas are not exported : everyone has them in their garden & they are widely available on the local markets. There is therefore no economic issue that would motivate a race for yield as often in intensive agriculture. See our report in Phitsanulok to learn more about the farming practices & the banana drying method of our family of producers: click here. https://www.lemonimport.com/visite-banana-society.html

And that's what we liked from our first meetings with K Chanama. Our customers in France regularly praise us for this highly concentrated energy food. Available in 250ml bottle.
