Green Banana Flour | 2016 Health Food Staple Steals The Spotlight

THERE’S BEEN AN ONGOING INCREASE IN DEMAND FOR GLUTEN FREE  PRODUCTS OVER RECENT YEARS AND DEMAND IS CLEARLY STILL SNOWBALLING WITH FORBES (2015) PREDICTING THAT GLUTEN FREE PRODUCTS WILL GROW BEYOND $2 BILLION IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

What’s interesting is those diagnosed with Celiac Disease are not the primary buyers of gluten free products, instead it’s consumers that are seeking to improve their health that are driving sales. This is where green banana flour comes in.

Natural Evolution are taking Australia by storm with their highly nutritious green banana flour and starch products. Yes they are 100% gluten free, but the products offer a significant number of health benefits.

Established in 2014 in North Queensland by Founder and Director Robert Watkins, Natural Evolution is the world’s first and only Certified Producer of Green Banana Resistant Starch and Green Banana Flour.

Although relatively new to the market the products are already selling fast nationwide at leading health food stores, independent grocers and selected pharmacies.

Natural Evolution have been placed even further into the spotlight with their Ultimate Gluten Free Green Banana Baking Flour featuring on Channel 7’s Sunrise as one of 2016’s staple health products.

During the January 2016 segment, the hosts revealed that Natural Evolution Green Banana Flour is a healthy, gluten free flour choice, developed by an Australian family. What they didn’t delve into was the actual health properties that are found in green banana products.

Natural Evolution Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour and Green Banana Resistant Starch are nutrient dense food sources, with both high in potassium, natural vitamins and natural minerals.

Natural Evolution specialises in producing the highest quality banana flour for baking. Their Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour can be added to many favourite recipes in place of other flours. We found it delicious in the Paleo Banana Flour Date Loaf .

They also offer the highest resistant starch supplement in the world – Green Banana Resistant Starch. There is only a small group of foods that are resistance starch type 2 (RS2). Unlike normal starches, resistant starches are not digested in the small intestine, allowing for numerous health benefits including assistance with digestion health, weight loss and immunity health, among many others. You can read the full list of benefits here.

Like the green banana flour, Natural Evolution’s Green Banana Starch is very diverse – mix it with water, add it to a smoothie, tea, soup… even sprinkle it on meals.
