Banana stem is high in fibre & like the fruit is a good source of Potassium & Vitamin B6. It also maintains fluid balance in our body & has cooling properties. Many reasons to include them in your diet.

After the banana brunch are harvested, the banana plant is no longer of use. Banana leaves & the banana stem are chopped off for use. The outer fibrous layers of the banana stem are peeled & the innermost cylindrical part of the banana stem, that can't be peeled anymore are used in cooking. Tender banana stems are easy to chew. As they mature they harden & are quite tough & fibrous. So, tender most banana stems are best used in cooking.

I love cooked crunchy banana stem in curries & this chutney made using banana stem.
