Not ours! We use green Saba bananas, which have 75% less sugar than the ripe Cavendish bananas that you’re used to eating from the grocery store. Most of our Kettle Cooked ‘Nana Chips and Grain Free Snack Mixes contain only 1g of total sugars per serving.
According the International Glycemic Index Database, any foods with a GI value under 55 are considered Low Glycemic. Fully ripe Cavendish bananas are listed with a GI value of 51 (still low glycemic). Green bananas are listed with a value of only 30.
Another wonderful benefit of our green bananas are that they are high in resistant starch, which have a prebiotic effect. Before bananas ripen, they contain mostly resistant starch (which will convert to simple sugars if allowed to go thru the ripening process). Studies show that resistant starch can lead to better digestive health.
Currently, all of B. Fine's products are vegan EXCEPT our Bourbon Vanilla UnGranola, which does have honey. Additionally, our entire facility is egg and dairy free, as we want to offer a large variety of products for a wide range of restricted diets.
Yes, we fry our green Saba banana in nutrient dense coconut oil. We feel that is the most nutrient dense and high-heat stable oil that we can use. More and more research is showing that saturated fat is no longer the enemy that we thought it was back in the 70's and 80's. In fact, it can be beneficial for us, especially when coming from coconut.
We think the following articles are worth the read:

Most of the sodium content is coming from the trace-mineral-rich Sea Salt that we use to provide for our bold flavors. The new research on sodium is proving to be interesting. We really respect the work of Dr. Chris Kresser. He wrote a very in depth report on salt with a fresh look at the latest data. See the below link...
His concluding statements:
"Hundreds of studies have been conducted on salt intake, and a consistent pattern has never been established for sodium’s role in a variety of negative health outcomes. Considering the evidence I’ve presented in this series, I believe that salt restriction for the general population is not only unnecessary, but potentially dangerous."
Since our products are all considered snacks, the FDA actually has a serving size guideline of 1oz or 30g. Our granolas also fall into the snack category since the FDA category for cereals is actually "grain based cereals." Our UnGranolas aren't grain based, so they don't fall into the cereal category!
In general, grain-free products are more expensive than the cheap alternatives we’re used to. For example, most granolas use oats as their primary ingredient. Oats are cheap, and they’re also a grain that we don’t use. Our ungranolas use a combination of coconuts, nuts, and bananas, which are most expensive but we think more indulgent than oats.
In all of our products, we use the highest quality, grain free, non-GMO ingredients available. We don’t take shortcuts, as we cater to very specific restricted diets like Paleo, AIP, and grain-free. Sometimes that means our foods are more expensive than what you might be used to, but if you’re on a restricted diet, your health is worth it.
Yes! We currently haveketo granolasand keto nut mixes that have only 2 and 3 grams of net carbs per serving. These are fantastic options if you're on the keto diet!
Our Snack Mixes and 'Nana Chips are best by 12 months from the manufacturing date. Our Ungranolas are best by 18 months from the manufacturing date.
We use green saba bananas in many of our products. These bananas are pretty fantastic since they taste nothing like the cavendish bananas that we're so used to in the US. They almost like a clean slate... a little bit like a potato... so that means we can make our bananas taste however we want! So, if you don't like bananas, I would recommend you try anything except our Bananas Foster UnGranola, which does actually have banana puree as an ingredient (as in... it tastes like bananas!).
We are Project Verified Non-GMO and are certified Kosher, Vegan, and Paleo by Earth Kosher.
