Yes, it is the same product, made of 100% banana flour, but now certified organic!
We decided to change names to allow us to expand into more product lines. The product is still made up of 100% green bananas (but now organic) and is still under the same ownership.
No, Zuvii uses unripe green bananas to make its banana flour and it gets processed before the sugar content develops in the bananas. The raw bananas give the banana flour an earthy, whole-wheat flavor. You’ll have a tough time believing it comes from bananas.
Making Zuvii Banana Flour is a simple process of peeling, drying and grinding the bananas into flour. There is only one ingredient: Green Bananas.
It’s a beige/brown, similar to the color of whole wheat flour.
The high starch content of Zuvii allows you to cook more with less flour. We recommend starting with 30% less. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, you will want to start with 2/3 cup of Zuvii Banana Flour to achieve the same result. Zuvii’s flour is higher in potassium, natural vitamins and minerals. Eating Zuvii Banana Flour products can help improve digestion, bowel movements and much more.
Anything. If recipe calls for flour, Zuvii Banana Flour can be your all-in-one alternative. Zuvii flour brings nutrition, taste and texture to every recipe. Don’t forget when using Zuvii flour, less is more. Rule of thumb is to use 30% LESS Banana Flour (Zuvii Banana Flour) than suggested flour. i.e. 2/3C Zuvii Flour for every 1C suggested flour.
Yes, Zuvii Banana Flour is GMO free and certified by the Non GMO project.
No, but hopefully one day. The tough part for Zuvii is it sources its banana flour from different suppliers all over the world. In return, all of these facilities would need to be certified for Zuvii Banana Flour to “qualify” as kosher certified. Zuvii is slowly working on this certification…Thank you for your patience.

Resistant Starch is known to “disappear” once it’s cooked above 140 degrees F. To obtain optimal Resistant Starch content for your diet Zuvii recommends consuming your banana flour raw. When consuming Zuvii Banana Flour in its raw form (i.e. smoothies, water, milk, etc.) you will retain the highest percentage of RS possible. However, Zuvii is working with labs to see the full amount of Resistant Starch lost in the cooking process, Zuvii has reason to believe it’s not as high as we’ve been led to believe.
You can store Zuvii Banana Flour just like you would any other flour. If you want to retain a longer shelf life, you can store Zuvii Flour in the fridge or freezer. However, we recommended if you do store Zuvii Banana Flour in the fridge or freezer you keep it in that environment until you are finished with your banana flour.
