Dried unripe plantain anyone?

Can anyone tell me where I can get dried, salted, unripe plantain? Ideally in the UK. I want them because they are a good source of resistant starch and I'd like an alternative to potato starch sometimes.

Thanks for your reply Joanna 4. I've only just come across resistant starch and I'm interested in it for glucose control and sleep and general gut health. I'm curious to hear if you've noticed any benefits from using RS so far.

There's no way in hell that the Serotonin in Bananas/Plantains survives digestion. Your body is extremely efficient at breaking down monoamines. Case and point oral Dimethyltryptamine does absolutely nothing because of how just efficient Monoamine Oxidase is.

The only people who should even consider this to be a potential problem -notice I said consider not 'abstain'- are those with significant mental disorders/those on SSRI/anxiety medication.

re-heating will just reduce (convert) the RS again afaik, you need to eat cold or cooled (room temp)

I wouldnt do it. Cook some rice and potatoes, put it in the fridge, heat again, will give you plenty of resistant starch without all the irritants of an unripe serotonin-rich fruit.

Is that the same thing as plantain flour? Im pretty sure amazon has it. But if u are looking for pieces, couldnt u just dehydrate the slices urself?? Id slice them thin with a mandoline, add seasonings, then put it dehydrator or oven until crispy. They have so little water content so it shouldnt take as long as other fruits. Probably cheaper that way. Im big on RS too. Just ordered potato starch because i hate eating cold potatoes.
