Milk and banana is one of the most favorite food for people of almost all ages. Both of them are chosen for a light food together. But experts warn that banana and milk together may not go so well. While separately, though separately they are extremely nutritious.
Milk and banana- two different entities:
Milk is loaded with proteins, vitamins and minerals like riboflavin, calcium and vitamin B 12. Per 100 grams of milk contains 42 calories. However, the old saying of ‘milk being a complete meal’ does not stand true as it lacks vital vitamins vitamin C, dietary fiber and very less carbohydrate. Since we are a vegetarian nation, we struggle to complete our protein requirement on a daily basis and milk can majorly help you in this regard.
Banana, on the other hand, is enriched with vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, dietary fiber, potassium, and biotin. Every 100 grams of this sweet fruit contains 89 calories, hence heavy on the stomach which makes us feel fuller for a longer time and charges our lost energy. High in carbohydrates, bananas are often considered a great pre-and post workout snack.
What happens when these two come together?
While the combination of milk and banana may seem like the ideal one, with the two making up for each other’s nutrient deficits (milk doesn’t have dietary fiber, which banana has), the two don’t do the same when they enter our body together.
The mixture disturbs digestion:
According to studies, consuming banana and milk together not only disturbs our digestive system as it is heavy but also disrupts our sinus. This leads sinus congestion, cold & cough and other allergies like rashes on the body. Therefore, while many believe that consuming the two together may sort out our digestive problems, it would rather lead to vomiting and loose motions in the long run.
Take a 20 minute break:
The best way to consume banana and milk is separately. If you wish to consume this as a pre-workout or post workout snack, then eat the banana after 20 minutes of consuming milk. Or you can add banana to your yogurt recipes if you really wish to consume it with a dairy product. (Source: bdnews24.com)
