Banana Spears  (Ecuador) 

One of our best selling superfoods, GY Banana Spears are made from the sweet fruit of sun-ripened heirloom variety of Ecuadorian red banana. Although our Banana Spears aren't the prettiest, they are super delicious and taste like banana bread! Once you discover these gems your life will forever be changed in a good way!

Red Bananas are a variety of banana with reddish-purple skin - the redder the fruit, the higher the carotene and vitamin C levels. When ripened, red bananas have a flesh that is cream-to-light pink in colour. They are smaller, softer and more plump than the common yellow Cavendish banana and are sweeter, with a slight raspberry-banana flavour.

GY Banana spears grow within Ecuador's regions of mineral rich dense black volcanic soil.  They are low-fat, sodium and cholesterol-free and a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C & B6. Because our Bananas are sun-dried and low-temperature dehydrated, the nutrients are concentrated making them little mineral powerhouses! These banana products have the same flavour characteristic of a peeled perfectly ripened banana.

GY Banana Spears are allowed to vine ripen under completely organic growing conditions and are then carefully hand-picked at the peak of freshness. This means the fruit remains connected to the plant until it's the natural time for it to be harvested. This ensures all potential nutrients are able to fully develop. Most commercial bananas are the highly hybridized Cavendish variety which is picked prematurely and then gas ripened.

What exactly is an heirloom variety? A true heirloom is a cultivar that has been nurtured, selected, and handed down for many generations and must be open-pollinated. No genetically modified organisms can be considered heirloom cultivars. Typically, heirlooms have adapted over time to whatever climate and soil they have grown in. Due to their genetics, they are often resistant to local pests, diseases, and extremes of weather.

Important Facts:
- Heirloom variety of Red Banana
- Allowed to fully vine ripen and picked at the peak of freshness, ensuring the highest concentration of nutrients and minerals.
- Air-dried then dehydrated at low temperatures to maximize nutrients. Contains no additives, preservatives, GMOs or other weird unnecessary ingredients; just bananas.

  1. Bulk Banana Spears-So Worth It

    Posted by Irene Bizios on 28th Jun 2015

    This is an update to my prvious review on the small bag of banana spears. I loved them so much that I bought the bulk bag-more economical and saves on packaging. It arrived quickly and vacuum sealed. This is my go to snack everyday.Nutritious, dense and chewy. Im ecstatic they sell this in bulk. GY suggested to divide them up into smaller containers and store in the refrigerator so they stay fresh. Ive been giving these out to family /friends and everybody loves them.

  2. Like no other

    These are amazing!!! They taste great and I feel so healthy after eating these. Sometimes I melt Giddy Yoyo's cacao and use it as dip with the banana spears. Delicious. You only need a few to feel satisfied because they truly are nutrient dense. I have not had a regular banana from the grocery store since eating these. I have bought practically every item from Giddy Yoyo and love everything. Their products are outstanding and their environmental practices gives me more reason to support this company. Their package info about why their company is different really sold me and those aspects are extremely important to me. They really go above and beyond.

  3. Fantastic Snack!

    We love these! Mostly I put them in lunches as a very tasty and nutritious addition. The banana powder is also brilliant, absolutely perfect for smoothies!
