Be naturally awesome with Chiquita’s organic bananas
If you’re striving for a healthier, lifestyle then Chiquita bananas are the perfect food: they are fat free, filled with complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and a generous helping of heart-healthy potassium.
Alongside the fast growth in vegetarianism and veganism, organic food sales have been booming around the world. Customers are becoming particularly health aware and ensuring that what they eat is ethically and sustainably sourced, as well as great tasting and high quality. This is a key reason why Chiquita’s organic bananas are proving so popular and now represent over 9% of the company’s total banana sales.
Chiquita’s organic bananas are carefully grown under a natural system of agriculture, using the latest organic farming techniques and a strong focus on meeting the special requirements for organic produce. To be classified officially as 100% organic, the location where the fruit is cultivated must be inspected by a USDA-approved certifier so that customers can be sure the grower is meeting all the rules and requirements of USDA organic standards.
Chiquita’s fully certified, high-quality organic bananas are a nutrient-rich, natural food that can be consumed as a key part of a healthy lifestyle – they are a fantastic, nutritious fruit that contains several important vitamins and minerals including vitamins C and B6, manganese and magnesium, as well as protein and dietary fiber: and all at just 110 calories per average banana. No wonder Chiquita bananas are seen a true health food!
An organic Chiquita banana can also be the heart of a great, healthy and delicious recipe. For example, for a tasty, healthy smoothie take half a cup of organic celery juice, half a cup of organic chopped kale, a frozen Chiquita organic banana, a tablespoon of fresh organic lime juice and a cube of organic ginger root. Blend with fresh organic mint leaves to taste.
You can also create a really healthy and refreshing fruit salad for the family with an organic Chiquita banana, granola and yoghurt. This recipe also features super-healthy, palate-cleansing fruit and the great texture of pecans. Enjoy with vitamin-packed organic orange juice for a mouth-watering dessert.
You can as well cook this delicious homemade dairy-free recipe: the vegan brownie with pecans and organic Chiquita bananas.
