Hi fred611, Bananas are packed with nutrition and there is very little bad about them. Here's the facts: Nutrition Data http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-B00001-01c20Tm.html Data for this listing was provided by USDA. RAW BANANA 93% Carbs 3% Fats 4% Protein The Good: This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B6. The Bad: A large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars. There's a lot more detailed information at the link above. Here's another source that has the same information in an easier to read format: Nutritional Information on Bananas, raw http://www.elook.org/nutrition/fruits/1928.html Here's a page at the DOLE FOOD COMPANY web site: FUN FACTS ABOUT BANANAS http://www.dole5aday.com/FoodService/pdfs/FACTSHEET_Bananas.pdf Hope this helps! If I can clarify anything for you, please ask for a clarification. ~~Cynthia Search terms used at Google: banana nutrition
