  1. I am from Dominican Republic and grew up on platains. I absolutely LOVE them, they are a diet staple because of the many benefits you mentioned. Very informative post!

  2. Tank God I ate plantain today. Hot smoking plantain. So sweet. I prefer the not so very ripe one.

  3. Who knew that plaintains had so many healthy benefits! I honestly thought bananas were healthier. It's good to know that it contains a lot of vitamins and it even helps ease menstrual cramps!

  4. I didn't know that plaintains are rich in fiber, they're perfect for keeping your metabolism regular if that's the case! This is really good information, I learned a lot thanks to this post. I'll be sure to include plantains in my daily meals as often as I can.

    • all ways are available from cooking with any soup or stew, to having it as chips or maybe with oil (which is a common way down here in my country Nigeria)… sometimes you can ground it down to powder and make it in another for for the soups and stew also. you can have it as plantain-porridge can make about 10 or more dishes from plantain. and they all are of great health benefits to the human body. i hope this helps.

  5. This was good to know! I always thoght that plantain is not really having any health benefits, but I was very wrong. IYou can find it here in Europe only in specail food stores and I think that in Hungary where I live it might be that it's sold nowhere – a real pity!

  6. here in the Philippines, we called it as "Saging Saba" and it is pretty common too.. It is mostly cooked with spring roll wrapper and sugar and then fried (we called it turon, a popular Filipino dessert). I also prefer to eat it raw as I am aware of some of its surprising health benefits
