Healthy food & supplements from banana flowers with love from Madeira.

The new superfood

Banana hearts (or banana flowers, banana blossoms) are the new superfood according to The Guardian. Whether we believe in this or not, one thing is for sure, many health benefits are attributed to them. Banana blossoms have high nutrition values in proteins, fibres and calcium, magnesium, potassium, just to mention a few and it is possible to prepare delicious dishes from them.

The banana flower

The banana flowers, the ingredients for our Madeira Banana Hearts project lie in front of our feet and as part of our commitment to contribute to the global climate action and support creating sustainable communities we just have to pick them up and use them. Therefore, we use the banana blossom as a meat/fish replacement ingredient and create dishes with the local, regional tastes that are delicious, create snacks and fusion meals.
