Nutrition Facts Don’t Add Up
Reviewed in the United States on April 29, 2020
I’m halfway through my first bag, and I’m already regretting my purchase. It started before I even opened the bag when I read the nutrition facts. To start off, there are 22 grams of sugar per serving, but each small bag contains 2.5 servings. So total sugar is 55 grams per bag. Yes, this is natural sugar, but it’s still a super high amount. The sugar is not my main issue though. It says the total fat is 0, although bananas have a high fat content. An article I found says banana chips have 10 grams of total fat per ounce, and 8 grams of saturated fat. I’m sorry, but it’s hard to believe that these chips have zero. To top it off, the potassium content is not listed, but everyone knows bananas are high in potassium. I did some research on this and found that banana chips do have potassium, but not nearly as much as their fresh counterpart. One ounce contains around 150 grams, whereas one banana supplies over 400 grams. Although the taste of the chips is decent, I can’t get past the fact that they’re not very good for you. Unless your using them to make homemade trail mix or eating them very sparingly, I would save my money and stick to fresh bananas. Oh, and in case you were wondering, they’re made in Thailand and distributed by Bare.
