Banana Flour: A New Gluten-Free Flour!

5 Comments 20 February 2014

WEDObananaflour

A few weeks ago I was contacted by David Wintzer regarding his gluten-free banana flour business project WEDO.  We had a great time chatting on the phone and I can tell he’s passionate about banana flour and building a business that helps others.

WEDO is the first gluten-free banana flour to be offered in the United States! Whoo Hoo!

And here are a few key reasons I’m excited about gluten-free banana flour now.

Why I love WEDO

  • It’s made from green bananas, so it doesn’t have that banana flavor and isn’t sweet. It’s actually a neutral flavor
  • As a socially responsible company, WEDO helps people all along the way of banana flour production and beyond!
  • SECRET: The original business model was one-for-one, similar to Tom’s shoes donating a pair of shoes each time a pair is bought, but they’ll have to promote that more after this Kickstarter campaign is finished.
  • It’s a resistant carb, which is supposedly healthier.
    Recently mentioned on the Dr Oz show:
    “Resistant carbs may help ward off serious disease…They may help prevent colon cancer by sweeping the colon and bulking up stools to eliminate toxins from the body. By switching to a mainly plant-based diet rich in resistant carbs, you could help cut your risk of colon cancer by 50%.”

Want to buy some WEDO gluten-free banana flour?

They just reached their goal on Kickstarter (Yay!!) that was needed to increase production and grow the company, but you can still buy some and help to make sure gluten-free banana flour becomes a regular staple in the US.

    I haven’t used banana flour, but I’ve used plantain flour, which I imagine works the same way. It’s a nice flour to use!

    I supported this Kickstarter campaign and just received my shipment. It’s nothing like plantain flour I’ve used in that it truly has a very neutral flavor. It’s not sweet, it doesn’t taste like bananas. I made crepes for my first test, and just followed the directions to use less than I would use of regular flour. They turned out great – and tasted like a crepe. I look forward to creating more recipes with it, and encourage others to try it.
