    I like it and don't eat it enough. I put it there with sweet potatoes, yams etc

    Re: how healthy is plantain?

    not really but depends on how much sugar is added.

    anything with excess sugar is not 'healthy' under any scenario

    and they are also typically fried in oil, not good

    It's basically the same thing as a banana. Plantains are nicknamed 'cooking bananas'.

    The macronutrients and nutrient profile of them are pretty much identical to a banana. They're a little high in sugar but overall pretty healthy.

    I would use them the same way as a banana. I am actually a big fan of plantains but never buy them. I'm not sure why. I like the difference in flavour.

    Re: how healthy is plantain?

    I ate plantain instead of potato when I did a language immersion. I am not sure if it is better than potatoes for ecological footprint. Canada is not the right place for that. Majority of my fruits come from California and this is a big issue for ecological footprint but I donít deal with that.
