Its prebiotic qualities assist in gut health because it stimulates the growth of good micro-organisms such as those of the intestinal flora. The research conducted on behalf of Messina Verpakkings shows that green banana flour aids diabetics in controlling their blood glucose and insulin levels and has been endorsed by Diabetes SA and the GI Foundation.
