The Love Co - Fresh Plantain

When used in skincare, fresh plantain is highly moisturizing for skin, making it soft and supple.

Plantains, native to Southeast Asia, share a family tree with bananas, making them often mistaken for one another. However, these starchy cousins carve out their own culinary niche. Unlike the soft, sweet banana enjoyed raw, plantains are hard and packed with starch, typically finding their place in cooking rather than as a direct snack. A common method of preparation involves slicing and frying them, transforming the plantains into a savory or sweet treat, popular in various global cuisines. This method unlocks the plantain's potential, offering a delicious alternative to traditional snacks.
