In Jamaica “Bammy” is a popular meal enjoyed by both residents and visitors of the tropical island. It is made from Cassava root (a vegetable in the yam family); which is very rich in starch and contains significant amounts of calcium, dietary fiber, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin b6 and vitamin C and is also Gluten Free.
Plantain is a “Banana-like” vegetable which can be served with a savoury main course or with dessert. Scientific studies have also suggested that plantains may be useful in preventing or treating kidney and bladder problems. A cup of sliced plantain only contains 181 calories.Plantains contain ten times more beta carotene than bananas, as well as having a good supply of Vitamins A, C, B6, potassium, folate, iron, and magnesium. The amount of Vitamin A in the fruit depends on the colour. The yellower the flesh, the more Vitamin A it contains. A deep yellow fruit can provide as much as 1200 IU’s of Vitamin A in a 3.5 ounce serving; this is how the product is prepared the fruit yellow, ripe and sweet.
