Fun Banana Bread Facts
According to our online source, FoodReference.com, banana bread is a type of bread made from mashed bananas. We have been baking breads for more than 12,000 years. The Banana originated in Southeast Asia (probably on the Malaysian archipelago) and spread from India, to the Philippines, New Guinea etc. It was cultivated by about 2,000 B.C., but these people were rice eaters, and wheat was unknown there, so breads were not part of their culture. But banana bread recipes for the most part are 'quick breads', that is leavened with baking powder. Quick breads (chemically leavened) which most banana bread recipes are, were not developed until the end of the 18th century. This took place in America, where pearlash was discovered. Pearlash is a refined form of potash, and it produces carbon dioxide gas in dough. In 'American Cookery' (1796 - the first American cook book) Amelia Simmons published recipes using pearlash, and we exported some 8,000 tons to Europe in 1792. (But she has no specific recipe for banana bread) Baking powder was not developed commercially until 1857 (phosphate baking powder). So the banana bread as we know it (a quick bread) could have been first made in America in the 18th century when housewives discovered pearlash as a chemical leavening agent.
Why banana bread is good for runners
According to our online source, KeepAndShare.com, banana bread is healthy for runners. The banana seems to be the most prevalent (and easily digested) foods for runners. It's one of the only things many runners can eat shortly before putting on their running shoes, and you always see them in mass quantities before and after races. Loaded with carbohydrates, it's no surprise that this fruit is great pre-run fuel - tastier than a sports gel, and far cheaper and easier to obtain. As for post-run, bananas don't contain much protein (only about 1g in a medium sized fruit), which is crucial to recovery in addition to carbohydrate, but they can certainly tie you over in a pinch. To make up for the lack of protein, you can make a healthy banana bread. On the Internet you can find recipes that are high in complex carbs, fiber, protein and healthy fats, without the oil, butter, egg yolks and white flour found in other recipes.
