After reading the headline, you surely thought that you already know the answer to the question, as we should consume bananas when they are ripe! Well, that is true, but apparently, the consumption of unripe bananas has its advantages as well.The more spots a banana has, the more prevalent its anti-cancerous properties are, according to scientists. This is a result of the increased levels of TNF, indicated by the number of brown spots on the fruit.
Ripe bananas are richer in fiber and antioxidants, potassium, vitamins C and B, and fiber. Their consumption is easier on the digestive system and offers countless health benefits.
However, there is some micronutrient loss that happens as the banana ages. To lessen the loss of vitamins and minerals, store your bananas in the fridge.

On the other hand, as we mentioned, green bananas have their benefits as well.
