Plantain is a starchy fruit that looks a lot like a banana. Unripe, plantains are firm and green. As they ripen, they turn yellow and begin to look much more like bananas.
Although the sweetness of plantains increases as they change from green to yellow and eventually black, they never become as sweet as bananas. Plantain chips are rich sources of complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, and are easily digestible.
Plantain chips are rich in vitamin A and C. Both vitamins are powerful antioxidants that keep your skin healthy and boost your immune system. Vitamin A also plays a role in healthy vision, and vitamin C protects your tissues from damage. They’re also rich in fiber and resistant starch.
The fiber and resistant starch in plantains helps promote digestive regularity. The high resistant starch content of plantains is excellent for weight loss. It promotes a feeling of fullness and helps you to eat less.
