About Saba Cooking Bananas:

These cooking bananas, a variety of bananas from the Philippines, are usually sold “green” or when the just begin to turn greenish-yellow, which means that the bananas are mostly starch, but if they are left out to ripen, as those in the photo above, they become sweet as the starch converts to sugar; however, they are not as sweet as the regular eating bananas. This is the reason that these cooking bananas are usually cooked in various recipes, much like plantains. In fact, these cooking bananas and plantains can be substituted for each other in any recipe. These cooking bananas are about 1/2 the size of plantains. We could not find any specific nutritional information for these cooking bananas.

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.
