What are the ingredients in B-COMPLETE™?

100% whole green dried bananas!

There are no additives in our B-COMPLETE™ products.  The product is 100% whole dried green bananas which have been processed and milled into a muesli consistency.

B-COMPLETE™ include the skins, the pulp, the stems and even the flower ends, all full of nutritious and beneficial vitamins and compounds. Most of the beneficial polyphenols, flavonoids are located in the peel, which is why they are an important part of B-COMPLETE™.

Does B-COMPLETE™ contain starch?

Like all natural products, green bananas do contain starch. However, in the recommended dosages, it won’t have any negative impact on your animal, only positive. The resistant starch is considered by many as a incredibly important element in the horses diet, but obviously it needs to be monitored across all aspects of the horses diet. Green bananas are a great source of fiber and we have highly qualified nutritionists who recommend B-Complete due to the multitude of gut health benefits.

Are green bananas safe for horses and dogs?

Yes they are.

As one would expect, a balanced diet is required, so supplementing into a balanced diet is a great way to look after your horse and dog’s health.

B-COMPLETE™ is a healthy addition to any horse or dog’s diet, with a key focus on gut health. The antioxidants, the anti-ulcerogenic properties are demonstrating huge benefits, and making for happier, healthier animals.

We have worked with PhD qualified nutritionists, Vets, University Academics, on this product and of course we have completed extensive in-field trials. We continue to further investigate the health benefits to the microbiome (a very new space).

It is not suggested to feed green bananas as a large ration of your horse’s feed or your dog’s meal, as the moisture alone may cause upsets. When supplemented as B-COMPLETE™ it is perfectly safe.

Muesli consistency versus powder consistency. What's the difference?

When we started to see competitive products in a powder consistency enter the market, some of which were not 100% banana, but an adulteration of corn starch, or other starches mixed with banana powder, we decided to produce a museli consistency so that you can see for yourself that our product is 100% dried green banana.

Our Canine range is our muesli product, but milled into a finer product to suit their palate.

We also know that current powders on the market don’t include the peel, where a lot of the most beneficial compounds are found! We have a Patent filed to protect our business from those that will no doubt try to imitate our B-COMPLETE™ product range.

We can provide a powder by special request which does include the peel, stem, and flower ends, just like our B-COMPLETE™, but finer!

Does Banana Feeds Australia do another product for Bees?

Yes! Banana Feeds Australia have worked with a number of reputable beekeepers in developing a very fine powder that has been showing amazing results in assisting with chalk brood issues, but also building bee colony health.

What research has Banana Feeds Australia undertaken, and what research will they be doing in the future?

Banana Feeds Australia has undertaken research with laboratories and researchers regarding the use of dried green bananas as a supplement for horses. It was such a new concept that it had never been done before! Well it has now!

We have worked alongside the South Australian Research and Development Institution, and the Vet School at Roseworthy campus for University of Adelaide.

Initially we conducted a world-wide academic literacy search, which turned up very little. We found papers on other species, so we had to start from scratch.

A lot of analytical work has been completed, lots of in-field trials conducted, and further extensive trials have now commenced against omeprazole for management of ulcers. There is evidence in overseas research that have indicated banana and their skins are achieving results equivalent to ulcer drugs.

Green bananas contain high levels of antioxidants and other bioactive compounds that may confer a variety of health benefits. Unripe bananas and green banana supplements have been found to be beneficial for gastrointestinal health in humans and have been shown to have anti-ulcerogenic properties in rodent models. In horses they are looking at the ulcers in the acid secreting areas of the stomach, which in horses are known as glandular ulcers, found in the lower part of the stomach. In the past these ulcers have been very difficult to near impossible to heal, and the work we are doing is to bring a new product to market that can improve this terrible condition.

Approximately 60-100% of strenuously exercising horses are affected by equine gastric ulceration syndrome (EGUS) and a natural product that could help prevent this condition would be extremely beneficial.

Banana Feeds Australia designed, commenced and have concluded an initial intensive trial with researchers at the University of Adelaide to determine the effects of feeding a dried green banana supplement on gastrointestinal health and specifically its use as an ulcer preventative or maintenance product.

The supplement is not intended to be fed as a primary source of carbohydrate and at the recommended dose, it was noted during our research and trial work, that the starch content did not cause any detrimental effects.
