you are making a difference:

  • Green banana products reduce the amount of unsaleable food waste. Green cavendish bananas are packed full of nutrients but since they cannot be sold for consumption due to specific supermarket guidelines, they would otherwise go to waste. 
  • Palm oil free. 
  • Vegan.

what is resistant starch:

Resistant starch is a type of starch that is not digested in the stomach or small intestine, reaching the large intestine (colon) intact. Thus, it “resists” digestion.  While most starches are broken down by enzymes in our small intestine into sugar, which is then absorbed into the blood, resistant starch functions like soluble fibre and isn’t fully absorbed in the small intestine. Instead, resistant starch makes its way to the large intestine where intestinal bacteria ferment it and turn it into short-chain fatty acids. For other forms of dietary resistant starch, choose unprocessed sources of carbohydrate such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and beans and legumes.

About Natural Evolution and Founder Robert Watkins

Are you aghast at the food wasted because of grocery retailer's ridiclous "cosmetic food guidelines" such as the length of shape of bananas?  So was North Queensland banana farmer, Rob Watkins.  Week after week Rob's farm disposed of tonnes of beautiful Lady Fingers that they had poured so much energy and resources into growing just because they were too big, too straight or too bendy for the supermarket giants. The fruit was perfectly good for eating and packed full of nutrients. Every week the local wallabies would flock to east as many green Lady Fingers as their tummies could handle, along with cattle breaking fences to get to the wasted* green bananas (*wasted meaning unsuitable for supermarket guidlines).

In 2010 Rob accidentally drove over a hand of lady fingers on the bitumen and what he saw in the sun rays was like dust, something he later named “diamond dust” due the difficultly in producing this superfood. This drove him to research whether this could be a flour? After suffering mild coeliac symptoms for years Rob knew of the need for good quality gluten free flour and he began producing green banana flour.

Demand for the product is not only due to it being gluten free but also because it is one of the highest resistant starch food sources in the world. What began as a purpose and use for tonnes of wasted bananas each week has evolved into a new market for all growers, and not just for their waste. Growers finally have the option of another marketplace for their produce and in fact the potential to earn more for their higher grades of bananas.
