How many calories in a banana?

This popular and tasty fruit, a firm favorite with adult and child alike, is rich in vitamins and many other things you need in your diet.

Like all fruits, the banana contains some calories, carbs and "good" sugar, but it provides considerable benefits, such as potassium to keep your body's nervous system working, when the banana is included in the daily diet along with other healthy foods and fruit.




So what number of calories does banana have? The answer to this question involves more than simple counting if nutritional issues are not ignored. The calories in the banana's soft inner core depends of course on its size and weight.

Here are some important key points on banana calories, and on the even more important big picture: banana nutrition.

The following is the calorie count for raw bananas:

Extra large (9 inches or longer, 152 grams)……. 135
Large (8-8⅞ inches, 136 grams)…………………… 121
Medium (7-7⅞ inches, 118 grams)………………… 105
Small (6-6⅞ inches, 101 grams)…………………….. 90
Extra small (less than 6 inches, 81 grams)………. 72
Slices (1 cup, 150 grams)…………………………….. 134
Mashed bananas (1 cup, 225 grams)…………….. 200

These amounts are higher than for most other fruits, but the quality of calories you consume is just as important as the total. So how do bananas stack up?

 Important to know is that they’re very low fat and a good source of quality carbohydrates.
Bananas have many valuable micro nutrients as well, such as potassium, magnesium, manganese and vitamin B6.

Some more nutritional information:

Fiber in a banana: about 2.5%
Fat: is ultra low at 0.5%
Sugar: is fairly high: 12-15%, and
Protein: is low at around 1%.
