Everyone will have a different opinion about which kind of banana tastes the best. But did you know that they're not all equally good for your health? Ohmymag reveals which banana is the healthiest.

Bananas are one of the healthiest things you can eat - rich in vitamins, fibre and potassium, they're a great source of energy and help your body stay fighting fit. But did you know you can get different health benefits from them based on what colour they are when you eat them?

Eating green bananas might be best for diabetics as the starch has not yet been broken down into simple sugars.
