Health Benefits of Green Plantain Flour and

The Adoption of a Paleo Diet

Green Plantain

Before processed food, We lived a healthy lifestyle. diabetes, obesity, and cancer was not an epidemic

Processed wheat, and in particular, processed wheat flour is partly responsible for many of modern day ailments that simply did not exist in years gone by.


“Is there an Alternative?”


As more and more people are ditching processed products for a natural “Paleo Diet”, which is a lifestyle that closely emulates the diet of human beings during our hunter-gatherer days, there is a growing demand for natural, unprocessed substitutes for the foods that can cause so many health problems.


One particularly useful and natural alternative to wheat flour is Plantain Flour, which in addition to not containing many of the harmful pesticides and hormones used in manufacturing processes, has a number of other benefits.


Plantain flour is:


  • Rich in Vitamins A, B, C, Potassium, Iron, Phosphorus, and Magnesium
  • Suitable for consumption by those suffering from both Type 1 & Type 2 diabetes
  • Able to treat a range of digestive issues, like indigestion, constipation, and diarrhea
  • Used to combat a range of symptoms associated with erectile dysfunction
  • Rich in resistant starch that does not create a sugar spike in the bloodstream
  • Free of gluten, making it perfect for those with an intolerance to it


There are many other benefits and uses for plantains in their raw form, which are far too numerous to go into here. Suffice to say that it is extremely useful and beneficial to health.


The Paleo Diet


Processed wheat flour is ubiquitous. Buy anything made from bread or pastry at any supermarket and it is 99% guaranteed to contain processed white flour, which means that even those with relatively healthy diets are consuming a lot of it and it is so hard to avoid without making some kind of lifestyle change.


One of the ways to effectively reverse the damage done from a lifetime of eating processed produce is to go/get back to our roots, to a time where humans were much healthier than we are today.

Most of the natural products we speak about can be found in African’s herbs and foods diet.

Plantains flour is one of the many foods from the African continent that can give us a healthier and balanced life.

Our mission is to raise awareness of the largely forgotten natural Organic nutritional food products from Africa, plus the benefits they offer.

    This has been really interesting to cook with, it seems to soak up liquids and almost dry out a recipe kind of like coconut flour sometimes does, but I’ve been really keen to work with this flour because I’ve read what a good prebiotic it is to provide food and stimulate our gut flora. I haven’t tried making any recipes just with this, rather I have substituted out about a quarter cup here or there. Many of my recipes just became slightly more dense or puffy, and I’m going to experiment with adding additional baking soda when I use this or possibly additional egg. Overall, the product arrived fresh, was ground well, and was just what I expected.

    Plantain flour is gluten free And it is Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol Diet compliant. If you are on any of these restrictions you already know that it’s pretty pointless to debate how close it is to regular white all purpose wheat-based flour. We know we can’t have it so we’re looking for something else that will suffice. I use this in a chocolate and peanut butter banana bread. I am satisfied with the taste of this, it is good to rotate and use different alternatives Instead of relying on the same thing because our bodies can create new allergies. I have already developed buckwheat flour allergy because that is a common replacement for wheat flour. Anyway I’m happy with plan Taine flower and I will be purchasing this and rotating my use of almond flour and coconut flour. I honestly don’t eat many grains anymore but sometimes you just want to have a traditional baked good item. Rating 5 stars = love it.

    I’d never tried plantain flour but thought it might be worth a shot as a gluten-free alternative. I’ve used it in several ways, from baked goods to thickening gravy to potato pancakes, and it’s worked perfectly so far. Not much flavor (I don’t understand the reviews that complain that it’s bitter) and I prefer that to a flour (like coconut) that lends a distinctive taste to the dish that I usually don’t want. It’s reasonably nutritious.

    I follow a gluten free/grain free diet, so I’m always interested in trying new flours. I had a hard time finding any recipes that use plantain flour, but I did read that it could substitute 1:1 for all purpose flour, so I tried it in both a brownie recipe and a spice bar recipe. In both cases, it worked wonderfully. Most importantly, it did not have any sort of banana flavor. I’ve hesitated to use it with things that have a milder flavor, though, as right out of the bag the flour has a bitter, sour flavor. I would’ve tried the pancake recipe on the back of the package, but it doesn’t specify the amount of flour, and I didn’t want to guess wrong and waste my ingredients. Still, I’m happy to have another grain free flour in my arsenal, though I’m not sure just how often I’ll use it.

    I absolutely love the taste of this flour. It is easy to make the most tasty pancakes by adding turkey bacon pieces. I am thrilled that I finally can use a gluten free flour that is nutritious and not just “gluten free”. I can’t understand the other reviews about “bitter tastes” etc.

    Has a great taste for baking. I blended the plantain flour 50/50 with my go-to flour mix to make standard size blueberry banana walnut muffins. The first try was only using the plantain flour it was relatively flat and condensed, I think it might work better with mini size protein muffins. Will try that for next batch.

    I am totally new to plantain flour. I have celiac disease and a lot of other food sensitivities and allergies, so I’m always trying new gluten free products. I had seen a recipe on YouTube a while back that used green plantains to make a type of wrap, so I decided to just mix some flour with water and a little salt, then fry it like a crepe. It remained soft and pliable, but it seemed like no matter how long I kept it in the skillet, it was still a little gooey inside even though it was thin. It was also slightly tangy, but once I tilled my wrap with roasted veggies and a little chipotle mayo, it was pretty darn good. Next time I’m going to add some more seasonings and maybe make a dough that I can roll out like tortillas and see how that turns out.

    This is a very good quality plantain flour. It is finely ground—no lumps, and not overly gritty. And it tastes great. It also has a good smell.
    This is an good choice for gluten free diets—this is a good alternative to wheat flour.
    Pancakes made with this were pretty good—not great compared to wheat flour—but still pretty good.

    This JEB FOODS Plantain flour serves as a healthy alternative for wheat flour as I like to cook paleo diet. I use it to make the crepe. Plantain is also resistant starch which is good for the gut because it’s prebiotic.
    I recommend it for the health nuts!

    This is my first experience with plantain flour now that I am on the Auto-immune Protocol (AIP) Diet and can’t have grains, potatoes, eggs, or seeds. My favorite starches have been sweet potatoes for breakfast, cassava- coconut flour flatbread for lunch, and gari (a hot cereal version of Yucca/cassava root) for a just-add-hot-water dinner starch.
    There is an advantage to plantain flour over cassava or (tapioca, the higher GI version of cassava which may spike one’s blood sugar.) People may be sensitive to cassava. But I seem to do fine with it.
    The standard recipe is plantain pancakes, but I am not a fan of pancakes with the need for a syrup on top – too hard on my blood sugar. But I tried making the flatbread with plantain flour instead of cassava, and it was a satisfactory alternative AIP flour. They turn out dark instead of light, and feel a little heavier. There is a recipe on zenbelly for plantain flour tortillas, and on thecuriouscoconut for AIP plantain flour biscuits, but it seems like a person could also make these foods with fresh plantains, which would be a cheaper way to go.
    Plantain flour would be good to have on hand for gravy, and other things where flour is really needed. I made the mistake of trying to make a crust with it, and it turned to burnt flour with oil on top. So I guess a person needs to add water to this kind of flour, just like coconut flour.
    Here’s my flatbread recipe:
    1 c Plantain flour
    1/3 c coconut flour
    2 Tbl oil
    1 t sea salt
    about 1/3 c water
    Spread in 8×10 greased pan. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees in large toaster oven. Cut into four squares. Store in fridge or freezer. Toast pieces to a crisp before eating.

    I actually enjoyed this plantain flour. It tastes great and it is gentle to the gut so much better than the green banana flour.
    Just my thought 🙂

    This is my first plantain flour so I can not compare it to others. It produces great tasting pancakes. Some people say plantains are bananas but bananas are typically eaten raw while plantains are typically cooked. Plantains are a staple food in tropical regions of the world.

    I was really excited to try plantain flour. I love this product and it is very high quality flour. I guess the only problem that I had was inexperience with plantain flour. It takes some experimenting to get the right result in your product.

    I recently stumbled on plantain flour and I found that of all the grain substitutes, this is the most like wheat. It makes a decent pizza of crust, but I mostly use it to make mug cakes whenever my kids have a sweet tooth. The JEB Foods version is a very fine, silky, cream colored powder. It smells a little bit sweet. There’s a recipe on the back for pancakes that I’m going to give a try!

    I tried the recipe on the bag for pancakes. The recipe failed to state how much plantain flour, so I used a cup. Since the recipe calls for egg and coconut oil as its only liquid, the batter was too thick for a normal blender, I added an extra egg and a little kefir. The flavor was good (but if you have a sweet tooth, a tablespoon of sugar or a packet of stevia might be in order.) Plantain flour is high in resistant starch, so you don’t absorb all the carbs. It is neutral in flavor, so it won’t make everything taste like bananas. It won’t rise much, so if I were making a cake I might add 2 Tbsp vinegar to balance the baking soda and give it lift. And I might whip the egg whites before folding in the other ingredients.
    This is a good GF flour and I will keep it as a staple in my kitchen.

    This is very similar to Whedo banana flour. This plantain flour has a nice texture. I like it better than almond flour. Almond flour is much heavier. This is good for 👨‍🍳 my, baking and raw food recipes. It’s non GMO and they don’t use pesticides. Yay for this paleo flour.

    I was quite excited to try this flour. Due to being diagnosed with lifelong allergies as a teen, I haven’t had pancakes in years, and it wasn’t without a lot of trying, especially by my mom back then, to find something that would work. We finally decided that there was no alternative. So this was a neat surprise!
    While I’d say the finished results taste more like tostones than actual pancakes, you still end up with a pancake shape, and something that you can add pancake fixings to. The pancake itself doesn’t have a super strong taste, so that if you add enough extras, you’ll mostly taste the other items.
    Something worth mentioning is that the recipe on the package seems to contain errors. It doesn’t say how much water or plantain flour to use. The recipe on this page is what I used (and printed out for future batches), with some other alterations.
