So it'll be better if I buy green bananas?
You kill me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize....
They will last longer.
Are green bad because more starch or ripe worse cause more frucose?
That's it. I had a feeling I was messing something up. Thanks for the clarification. Sucrose what was I meant.Originally posted by aka23
Galactose is a monosaccharide found in dairy products. The disaccharide you are thinking of is sucrose (table sugar). Also note that unripe bananas contain more starch (polysaccharides) than glucose, fructose, or sucrose. In under-ripe bananas 80-90% of the carbohydrates are starch. As the bananas ripen, the starch changes to free sugars; including sucrose, glucose, and fructose. A 100g green banana has about 16.0g starch, 0.5g fructose, 0.8g glucose, and 1g sucrose. A 100g ripe banana might have 5.0g starch, 4.0g fructose, 6.0g glucose and 6.5g sucrose.
