Kath & Kim Sticky Date Pudding

Natural Evolution’s green banana baking flour is a unique, power-packed source of dietary fibre, which is rich in prebiotic fibre resistant starch for optimum gut health—baking that loves your belly. This flour is high in essential minerals and vitamins—potassium, zinc, magnesium and manganese and Vitamin E—transforming your baked treats into nutrient-rich health foods.

 

Natural Evolution’s bananas are grown biodynamically and are chemical/pesticide free. They believe in holistic farming that sees the plant as the most important part of the process—plants need to be healthy and thriving to produce nourishing and beneficial food. The banana trees are cared for with soil microbes, with good soil health at the heart of Natural Evolution’s philosophy because only by having good healthy soils are the roots able to uptake critical nutrition.

Here is a short clip by CSIRO with whom Natural Evolution have worked with in the past.

 

Their green banana multi-fibre is the richest source of resistant starch ever found on Earth to date – such a discovery that Krista, co-founder of Natural Evolution was invited to speak at a TEDx!
