Facts On The Amount Of Calories In Bananas Fruit

By Arold Augustin

Bananas are one of the world's best selling and most commonly consumed fruits. A banana's calories come primarily from sugar and starch, which is true of most fruits. The calories in a banana are approximately 100, and the fiber content is generally around 3 grams. Bananas are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6 and manganese, providing 10% or more of one's daily requirements of these nutrients.

Bananas have less water in them compared to juicy fruits like grapes and oranges. If you take one ounce, the juicier fruits should have less calories compared to the bananas. The average fruit of this kind has 105 calories while an apple has 95. An orange has 65 and most adults require at least 1600 in one day. The difference in the amount of energy that different fruits produce in the body is minimal. However, it is advisable to take a variety of fruits in order to get many nutrients.

There are many benefits of taking bananas. One reason why they are recommended is because they produce energy that is needed in metabolism. They also give energy that is used to carry out various physical activities. Fats, carbohydrates and proteins give out calories. Carbohydrates which include starch, fiber and sugars account for 95% of this energy.

The average banana contains 14 grams of sugar, 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of starch. Small amounts of proteins and fats are also available and they make up about 4% of the calories. There are several kinds of bananas. The yellow and long type is the most common. It is found in most supermarkets and fruit shops. You can also find the plantain, red and baby bananas in different markets.

Compared to the types that are taken while raw, the plantain kind of banana has more energy. The latter types contain the same amount of energy but they have different sugar to starch ratios. Big fruits have higher energy content. If you need an exact calorie count in your diet, then you need to have recipes that specify the size of fruit you need.

According to the USDA's National Nutrient Database, a banana that is 6 to 7 inches long and weighs 3.5 ounces contains 90 calories. A banana that is 7 to 8 inches in length and weighs 4 ounces contains 105 calories. A banana that is 8 to 9 inches in length and weighs 4.75 ounces contains 121 calories.

Bananas are frequently used to flavor recipes and packaged foods. Snack bars, yogurt, cereals, muffins and breads are just a few of the foods that are frequently enhanced with the flavor of bananas. However, it is important to realize that in the case of processed foods, sugars, additional fat and other ingredients are also included.

The calories in a banana are important for healthy body growth. Doctors recommend this fruit for every person because it has manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, Vitamins B6 as well as Vitamin C. Another advantage of this fruit is that it contains sodium, cholesterol and saturated fat in trace amounts. Combining bananas with other fruits will ensure that the body gets all the nutrients that it needs for proper growth.
