Yes we like to think of our humble banana as a true fruity hero! Peel back that yellow skin and you’ll find a powerhouse of nutrients, not to mention, a premium quality banana-ry sweetness that is unmistakably Chiquita!
The best thing about Chiquita bananas is that they’re so convenient and versatile. They come in their own tough packaging which makes them a great healthy snack for kids, and also perfect for travel or as workout snacks. When it comes to banana nutrition they’re really hard to beat! They’re chock full of essential goodness like potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium and fiber for a long lasting boost of energy that can get you through the day.
At Chiquita, we take great care in growing and distributing our bananas and we label them with our famous Blue Chiquita Sticker that everyone knows and loves. With the benefits of bananas truly endless, we must say Chiquita bananas are a real hero fruit!
Chiquita bananas are not only the tastiest of the bunch, they’re just so good for you. Bananas are one of the best fruit sources of “happy” vitamin B6, and are also a good source of vitamin C. The manganese in bananas is great for your skin, and their generous levels of potassium are good for heart health and blood pressure. Bananas can aid digestion and help beat gastrointestinal issues, thanks to a considerable amount of soluble fibre. What’s more, their natural sugars provide a long-lasting boost of energy throughout the day. And don’t forget they contain absolutely zero fats or cholesterol – a true hero fruit!
