Banana is not only a delicious fruit, it also has many health benefits due to its rich minerals and nutrients. The longer you keep bananas, they will turn from greenish to yellowish and eventually dark, as they grow ripen. As you might also have noticed, the taste of bananas changes as they ripen. They get sweeter and sweeter. The question some asked is what is the best time to eat a banana? When it is fresh or ripe? Or does it make any difference?
Well, the answer is it depends. When banana is ripe, it is more sugary, but its antioxidant and anti-cancer properties also surge. So if you worry more about sugar, then eat fresher bananas, such as 3 or 4 in the picture.. If you want to more antioxidant and anti-cancer benefits, then eat riper bananas, such as 6 or 7 in the picture. Image source Positive Med
