The more we live, the more we learn, one part of learning that intrigues me is learning something new about something old, for example, learning new things about the foods we eat can be really interesting, foods like rice, beans, garri and all, also fruits should not be left out as they are also food substances. Fruits have their peculiarities and today I'm speaking about banana, banana is a popular fruit that is widely eaten in this part of the world, it has a sweet taste and it is nutritious.
Banana can be eaten with different foods or alone and it can be used to make fruit salads, it is simply easy to add to some dishes.
Banana has some really good information that I'd love to share with you and as you read on you'll get to know more about the fruit, before you consume another banana I admonish you to find out some cool facts about bananas.
1. Banana contains many important nutrients, some of which are potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, protein, fat, etc.
With these nutrients and more banana is nothing short of a good fruit for consumption.
