Bananas, Nino

Bananas, Nino in Spanish means little boy bananas, but in Italian, nino means God is gracious. We believe that both of these meanings fit well with these bananas.

About Nino Bananas:

Nino bananas, baby bananas, or finger bananas, as they are also called, look very similar to the common yellow bananas found in food markets. However, these bananas are thin-skinned and are only 3-4 inches long. These bananas also ripen in a similar manner to the larger variety by developing brown spots on a yellow skin. The flesh has a more dense and creamy texture than standard bananas.

Some sources claim they are much higher in calories than the standard banana, but our research disproves that: a single nino banana, with an average weight of 85 grams, has about 80 calories, derived from its 20 grams of carbohydrate (1 gram fiber and 13 grams sugar), 1 gram of protein, and 0 grams of fat; a similar weight of the flesh of a regular banana has 75 calories. We could not find any other nutritional information. The only drawback that we found to buying these bananas on a regular basis is that they sell for 2-3 times the price per pound of the standard yellow bananas, but the advantage is that they take up less space, and they contain less waste (skin weight).

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
