Paleo and gluten-free monkeys rejoice! You can now enjoy puffy, fluffy pancakes, peanut butter cookies, and rich, thick sausage gravy, or even just an extra shot of potassium in your morning smoothie, courtesy of the little old banana. WEDO's Banana Flour is a wheat substitute made entirely of green bananas.
Banana Flour is similar to wheat flour in calories and carbs, but higher in fiber, and ultra-high in potassium. Each 1/4-cup serving has 330mg, or 9% of the DRA, compared to wheat flour's 34mg. Banana Flour is also super starchy, so it works as a thickening agent for sauces, soups, and gravies where other gluten-free flours may not. In fact, the Resistant Starch (RS2) contained in bananas is considered a digestive starch, so you may even find it helps "scrub your gut" and clean your colon after you eat it. Ahhhh, no better way to cap off a Tuesday night than with a nice big bowl of clam chowder down the top hatch, followed by a nice big bowl of fudge nuggets dropped out of the bottom one.
In gluten-free baking Banana Flour complements other gluten-free flours, and at times can serve as a direct substitute for wheat flour. To make the fruity cooking agent, WEDO harvests, peels, and dehydrates green bananas, and then simply grinds them up.
