Bananas contain an insoluble carbohydrate called Resistant Starch. Resistant Starch is a starch that by-passes amylases (enzymes that break the covalent bonds of glucose molecules) and thus does not break down into sugar molecules the way a bowl of oatmeal or potato would when consumed. Because resistant starches are not broken down into sugars, they are not directly absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead, these starches are passed, undigested, into the large intestine, by-passing the small intestine completely.
