Do bananas carry a disease that can harm people?

User Avatar
Any fruit can get infected with a virus that could be harmful for people. In the case of bananas, they have a good resistance to any harmful diseases. In any case, if you get one infected, it must be an isolated case. Salmonella is mostly found on tomatoes which the outer layer or peel is not as strong as a banana peel.

Review of related literature about banana?

The usual problems of fruit dealers, it's not different from other market dealers in a certain way. Commonly, problem occurs when delivering it results of disadvantages. For example, traffic, road constructions, and even weather disturbances. All of these are stated here in the review for the fact that these can be a reason of fruit spoilage. Choosing an appropriate fruit shouldn't be lost here either. Fruits commonly seen in the market would be like apple, banana, oranges, mango, and any other fruits. And I say banana would easy to be eaten. The banana plant is the largest herbaceous flowering plant. The plants are normally tall and fairly sturdy and are often mistaken for trees, but their main or upright stem is actually a pseudo stem that grows 6 to 7.6 meters (20 to 24.9 ft) tall in 5-8 months depending on the plantation, growing from a corm. Banana is a staple starch for many tropical populations. The flesh can vary in texture from firm to mushy. Both skin and inner part can be eaten raw or cooked. Bananas' flavor is due, amongst other chemicals, to isoamyl acetate which is one of the main constituents of banana oil. Banana hearts are used as vegetables in South Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine, either raw or steamed with dips or cooked in soups, curries and fried foods. The flavor resembles that of artichoke. As with artichokes, both the fleshy part of the bracts and the heart are edible. Banana leaves are large, flexible, and waterproof. They are often used as ecologically friendly disposable food containers or as "plates" in South Asia and several Southeast Asian countries and may be also used as umbrellas when the pseudo stems are tied together to form a floatation device only in regions where banana grows. The tender core of the banana plant's trunk is also used in South Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine, and notably in the Burmese dish mohinga (rice noodles in fish soup) Banana peel may also have capability to extract heavy metal contamination from river water, similar to other purification materials.

No, they don't. Banana's grow on a different type of tree. Bananas do not grow on trees, they are the largest flowering herbaceous plant. The main stem is a pseudostem which dies after fruiting.

Does a banana have protein?

User Avatar
Bananas Are Not A Good Protein Source Bananas have a small amount of protein. For example, one medium-sized banana about 7 inches long would contain about 1 gram or 4 calories worth of protein. However, bananas are commonly known for their potassium and carbohydrate content.
