Should You Be Eating Banana Peels?

Bananas are among most popular fruits in the U.S. In fact, Americans ate just over 14 pounds per person in 2017.

An Australian nutritionist claims eating banana peels boosts the intake of fiber and important nutrients.

However, bananas themselves are already good sources of those nutrients.

According to Business Insider, eating banana peels can expose you to contaminants or pesticides.

So if you happen to like the taste and texture, it's important to wash and scrub them carefully!
