Business Has Gone Bananas!

NATURAL EVOLUTION FOUNDERS ROB AND KRISTA WATKINS ARE THE WORLD’S FIRST AND ONLY CERTIFIED PRODUCER OF GREEN BANANA RESISTANT STARCH AND GREEN BANANA FLOUR.

Recently the innovative brand shared their story to over 5000,000 viewers on Channel Ten’s popular program – The Project.

Despite this achievement they have retained their humbleness, working countless hours and tapping into their true passion for ultimate nutrition to keep innovating.

Where did such a fruitful, entrepreneurial business idea begin?

As a child, Rob grew watching his father pour all he had into their banana farm. Inspired by his fathers’ love for farming, Rob followed his footsteps and became one of Australia’s largest banana growers, specialising in lady fingers.

Rob has always been passionate about farming philosophy, believing that ultimate nutrition starts from the soil in which a plant is grown. So you can imagine his disappointment week after week, disposing hundreds of tonnes of perfectly nutritious and good for eating beautiful lady fingers – all because the bananas simply had the wrong ‘look’ for the shelves.

Every week, he watched as wallabies flocked and cattle broke fences, just to get to the ‘wasted’ bananas.

What interested Rob most was the way the animals always filled themselves with the discarded green bananas and left the ripened bananas untouched. He also noticed the increase in health the animals were experiencing – their coats were shinier and they appeared to have an abundance of energy.

What did the animals know that he did not? These green bananas were destined for something so much bigger then wallaby scraps.

The moment that changed everything was at dusk, one summer day in 2010. Rob had accidentally driven over a hand of lady fingers which crushed against the bitumen and created a dust in the sun’s glowing rays.

Already an eager inventor, developing breakthrough creations like a new field of invention machinery and the Banana Blankey (a fully recyclable packaging system), Rob was intrigued by this ‘banana dust’. His inquisitive nature questioned, could this be flour?

He found that not only could it be flour, but it was gluten free flour and one of the world’s highest resistant starch food sources.

Suffering from coeliac symptoms himself, Rob made a small 6kg batch of banana flour to use and sell in the family café. In a matter of weeks, the demand was greatly surpassing his supply; in fact he was months behind in requests. The market loved it!

This demand inspired Rob to refine the process of production. So back to his entrepreneurial ways, he invented the first and only peeling machine in the world, speeding up the process and drastically increasing output to approximately 300kg per week.

With demand still going bananas for their product, the Watkins secured a grant in August 2014 and built yet another world first – a pharmaceutical grade banana
flour factory.

They now have the facilities to produce eight tonnes of banana flour each week and have since continued to create more innovative green banana products.

In fact, the Department of Fisheries in Queensland has just released a very exciting study on the Natural Evolution  range of products, analysing the phytochemical composition and anti-microbial activity. You can read the results here.

Take a look at the ever expanding Natural Evolution banana flour, starch, smoothie mixes and ointment on their website.

The Amazing Adventure of Resistant Starch

RESISTANT STARCH IS THE NEW FIBRE.

It’s the powdered version of liquid gold in the health industry right now. But what is it and why should you arm yourself with knowledge on it?

Until recently, dietary fibre may have been the only food component believed to enter the large intestine. That was until resistant starch was discovered. Over the last 10 years, scientists have found a significant portion of starch “resists” digestion in the small intestine and reaches the large intestine where it feeds good bacteria and does wonders for health.

Do yourself a massive favour and put 4 minutes aside, grab a cuppa and watch this amazing video. It will take you on a magical journey into the intestinal track to see the wondrous effects of resistant starch.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF RESISTANT STARCH
Working similar to soluble fibre, this starch has been said to have the following health benefits, among many more.

• It stimulates the large intestine’s bacteria. This creates short-chain fatty acids particularly butyrate, which is a substance that maintains the bowel lining and is believed to assist with the prevention of bowel cancer.

• Creates a feeling of fullness and lessens the number of kilojoules absorbed from carbohydrates. This could assist in weight management.

• Can help to maintain a steady GI after eating. This allows the body to demand less insulin, which is particularly important for people with diabetes.

• Works as a mild laxative – the bowel is full of bacteria that use the starch as food. This increases the mass of bacteria, which adds to faecal bulk.

• Being impervious to fermentation by bacteria in the mouth, resistant starch can help prevent tooth decay.

 

FOODS THAT HAVE RESISTANT STARCH
There’s up to 5 percent resistant starch present in most starchy foods, but these levels rise significantly in particular foods. Foods naturally high in the starch include legumes and unripe bananas (54%).

Blog Post_Resistant Starch_April 20162

 

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED INTAKE?
To promote good bowel health, nutritionists suggest that 20 grams of resistant starch should be consumed daily. Currently Australians only consume approximately 6 grams per day from cereals and bread (36%), vegetables (26%) and fruit (22%).

 

A CLOSER LOOK INTO RESISTANT STARCH
Made of numerous glucose units fused together, starch is certainly a complex molecule. Starch occurs as either an amylose form or an amylopectin form. Amylopectin is readily digested, but amylose is ‘resistant’ to digestion in the
small intestines.

There are four different categories that resistant starch can be divided into.

• RS1 – Found in whole or kibbled grains, legumes and seeds where the granules of starch are inaccessible, preventing digestive enzymes accessing the starch.

• RS2 – Found in unripe banana, raw potato, some legumes and Hi-maize, this starch is an amylose form starch, making it naturally resistant.

• RS3 – Found in cooked-then-cooled potato, corn flakes and bread, this starch is a result of the crystalline form being altered from cooking or processing.

• RS4 – These are chemically modified and used to thicken foods. Unlike natural starch, these starch are less likely to breakdown during processing.

 

Resistant starch from green bananas (which is one of the highest natural sources) can be found in Natural Evolution products. They offer a pure green banana resistant starch as well as a large range of products that contain the starch, from gluten free baking flour to banana ointment.

Monica’s Mixes also offer products made with green banana flour (containing resistant starch); paleo flour, muffin mix, pizza base mix and wrap mix.

Paleo Baking with Banana Flour

THANKS TO GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE FLOURS, IT’S NOW SUPER EASY FOR CONSUMERS FOLLOWING THE PALEO DIET TO ENJOY FRESH, HOME-MADE BAKED GOODS.

Natural Evolution’s Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour (made from green Cavendish bananas) is an innovative wheat flour substitute. Using it in cakes, bread or in nearly every baking recipe is a healthy alternative to satisfy a carb craving.

Green banana flour is not just paleo friendly
and gluten free, but also offers
great health benefits due to the
green banana resistant starch found
in the product.

Not bananas about the flavour of banana? Not a problem! Natural Evolution’s banana flour doesn’t actually taste of bananas, instead it’s almost flavourless, with a slightly nutty, clean taste.

To harness the flours nutritional benefits, it’s easy, just choose a wheat flour recipe and simply add 25-30% less banana flour than wheat flour, try a recipe from the Natural Evolution recipe page, or share the below recipe! We were lucky enough to have this delicious date loaf made for us by Natural Evolutions lovely owners Rob and Krista Watkins – it disappeared off the plate faster than a cave man running from a t-rex!

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.
