We all know bananas are good. I use to purchase babanas for FRIM’s table tennis players during competition.
But, be careful.
Bananas available in the market are forced ripe by dipping in water mixed with carbide which may cause cancer.
How do you know if the bananas are ripened naturally or with the help of carbide?
First, just ask the seller. Look into his/her eyes and you will get the answer. He or she normally dares not cheat us.
Second, observe the look of bananas. Bananas which are ripened naturally are dark yellow with small black spots here and there and the stalks are black. Bananas that are forced ripen with carbide are lemon yellow without any black spots and their stalks are green.
Be a wise consumer.
Ask for naturally ripened bananas the next time you are purchasing them. Normally, the sellers have no choice but to tell the truth.
