Here are all the things you probably did not know about bananas even if they are your favorite fruit!

Bananas, like most fruit on the planet, are extremely nutritious and healthy. But compared to other fruits, they are one of the most popular fruits in the U.S. Americans consume an average of 27 pounds of bananas per person every single year. And it’s not surprising at all, since they are delicious, providing numerous health benefits.

Besides, they are also a convenient snack. It’s easier to throw a banana in your bag and eat it later than take a bowl of strawberries with you, which you’ll have to wash properly before consumption. People of all ages say that bananas are their favorite healthy snack, mainly because they don’t require an entire washing process as most fruits do.

However, aside from being highly convenient, they also offer a plethora of health benefits. So, let’s find out exactly what you’re getting from your favorite fruit!
