What is Solar Dried Bananas?
Our sun-dried bananas come from a special, local variety from the exotic Boloven Plateau in southern Laos. Called Guay Nam, it is consumed by the Lao people in the form of chips or grilled over a wood fire. But only once it is dried at full maturity does it reveals its aromatic splendor.

Flavor of Solar Dried Bananas:
The aromatic range of this mini-banana is very wide. There are fruity notes of wild strawberries and pineapple, but also honey and spicy notes close to gingerbread. The final note evokes the aromas of an arranged rum.Its sweet aromas also evoke figs or dried dates as well as candied apricots. Unlike dehydrated bananas, dried bananas have a particularly pleasant softness.

How to Use Solar Dried Bananas:
With their naturally sweet flavor, bananas can be eaten on their own to satisfy hunger pangs, offering a quick and convenient snack for all athletes or hikers who need to regain strength quickly.
Futhermore, you can cook them into pastries such as banana bread, muffins, homemade cereal bars, granola or by coating them with chocolate. Garnishing with applesauce is an additional option.
You could also add to sweet and savory cooking, such as in a tagine or combining with Colombo or Creole spice blends.

Health Benefits of Solar Dried Bananas:
Bananas are known for their richness in nutrients and their health benefits, containing many vitamins (B, C, E, K and D) as well as additional minerals. As it dries, the bananas lose water, which is why, for the same amount consumed, the dried banana will become much more concentrated in vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and iron than a fresh banana. It is therefore one of the favorite snacks for athletes looking to speed up their metabolism by providing their body with the nutrients it needs.
While it may seem caloric, it is important not to confuse its energy intake with fat intake. It does not contain any lipids, so fat intake is almost zero. It is thus a suitable food to satisfy temporary hunger, and a single banana will give you plenty of energy until the next meal.
Rich in fiber, one banana provides about five percent of daily nutritional requirements.The sugars, like all fruits, are slow-releasing sugars that provide energy and will not produce an insulin spike or a craving for additional sweets. Indeed, dried bananas are a good appetite suppressant.
