Due to the high iron content in bananas, they are good for those suffering from anaemia. Anaemia is a condition where there is a decrease in the number of red blood cells or haemoglobin in the blood. This leads to fatigue, shortness of breath, and paleness. But, as we always say that moderation is the key.

Cooking with Bananas
There are a number exciting ways in which you can add bananas into your diet. Some points to remember while buying them are -
- If you are buying by the dozen, make sure you pick slightly firm bananas so that they last you at least 4-5 days without spoiling.
- Bananas tend to ripe really quickly, which is why after a while the peels turn back while the flesh become gooey. A smart thing to do would be to buy in smaller quantities and enjoy them fresh.
- Look for fruits without any blemishes or squishy spots.
- Do not store them in the refrigerator.
