Product Code: GID-012

These highly mineralized Giddy Yoyo Banana Spears are made from the sweet fruit of sun-ripened heirloom variety of Ecuadorian Red Banana. Red Bananas are a variety of banana with reddish-purple skin - the redder the fruit, the higher the carotene and vitamin C levels. When ripe, raw red bananas have a flesh that is cream-to-light pink in color. They are smaller, softer and more plump than the common yellow Cavendish banana and are sweeter, with a slight raspberry-banana flavor.

Red Bananas are low-fat as well as sodium and cholesterol-free. They are a good source of fiber and potassium, and a great source of vitamin C & B6. Because the Banana Flakes and Powder contain only 3% water, the nutrients are much more concentrated. The flakes and powder are little mineral powerhouses! These banana products have the same flavor characteristics of a peeled perfectly ripened banana. These red bananas are allowed to vine ripen under completely organic growing conditions and are then carefully hand-picked at the peak of freshness. This means the fruit remains connected to the plant until it's the natural time for it to be harvested. This ensures all potential nutrients are able to fully develop. Most commercial bananas are the highly hybridized Cavendish variety which is picked prematurely and then gas ripened.

These banana grow within Ecuador's regions of mineral rich dense black volcanic soil.

What exactly is an heirloom variety? A true heirloom is a cultivar that has been nurtured, selected, and handed down for many generations and must be open-pollinated. No genetically modified organisms can be considered heirloom cultivars. Typically, heirlooms have adapted over time to whatever climate and soil they have grown in. Due to their genetics, they are often resistant to local pests, diseases, and extremes of weather.

5 of 5 Sticky, chewy, and delicious May 5, 2020
Reviewer: Jesse Stuart from Ottawa, ON Canada  
These dried bananas are a delicious snack with just the right amount of chewiness. I sometimes like to change it up a bit by refrigerating them. The only downsides are they leave my fingers a bit sticky and they're the first snack to disappear from the pantry.
