The banana tree is grown primarily for its fruit, and to a lesser extent for its stem, leaves and decoration. Bananas come out into hanging baskets, each layer (called bag) has up to 20 fruits, and each chamber has 3–20 bunches. The bags are generally called a chamber, weighing 30–50 kg. An average fruit weighs 125 g, of which about 75% is water and 25% is dry matter. Each individual fruit has a tough rind around soft edible flesh. The skin and flesh are both edible fresh or processed (cooked). Bananas contain a lot of vitamin B6, vitamin C and potassium.

Bananas are rich in pectin which is a type of fiber brought about by its spongy structure. Unripe bananas contain resistant starch that acts as soluble fiber and is eliminated through the digestive tract. The pectin and resistant starch in bananas can lower blood sugar levels after eating and reduce cravings by slowing stomach emptying.
Fiber has been linked to many health benefits including improved digestion. One medium banana has about 3 grams of fiber.
For those who are starting to lose weight, banana is a good choice because it contains few calories but is very nutritious. Moreover, unripe bananas contain resistant starch, so it will make you feel full for a long time and reduce appetite.
