Description:This photographic still life is composed of a bunch of ripe bananas that had been set atop a kitchen cutting board placed on a bright yellow countertop. Though bananas are high in carbohydrates, they are also high in potassium, 400mg per 1/2 cup, and vitamin C, 10% of the recommended daily intake per 1/2 cup.
Bananas are the most popular fresh fruit in the United States. They have a peel that comes off easily, they ripen after they've been picked, there is a generous supply all year, and they are inexpensive. Bananas have both a high amount of carbohydrates as well as potassium, which also makes them the fruit of choice for many athletes. (Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition, 1992).
