A green plantain is an unripe or underripe banana-like fruit that is commonly used in Latin American, Caribbean, and African cuisine. It is starchy and not sweet like a ripe banana, and is typically cooked before being eaten.
Green plantains are often used in savory dishes such as stews, soups, and fried dishes, and can also be mashed or sliced and used as a side dish. They are a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are popular in many cultures around the world.

How to eat Green Plantains?
Green plantains are typically cooked before being eaten. Here are a few ways to prepare and eat green plantains:

1. Boiled Plantains: Peel and cut the green plantains into chunks, and boil them in salted water until tender. Drain and serve as a side dish or mash them to make a plantain puree.

2. Fried Plantains: Peel and slice the green plantains into thin rounds, and fry them in oil until golden brown and crispy. Serve as a snack or side dish.

3. Baked Plantains: Cut the green plantains in half lengthwise, and bake them in the oven until tender. Serve with toppings such as cheese, salsa, or sour cream.

4. Plantain Chips: Slice the green plantains into thin rounds, and deep-fry them until crispy. Serve as a snack or appetizer.

Overall, green plantains are versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be used in savory or sweet dishes, depending on your preference.

Are Green Plantains low FODMAP? 
Green plantains are considered to be low FODMAP in small servings, according to Monash University's Low FODMAP Diet app.
A serving size of 1/2 cup (75g) of boiled green plantain is considered low FODMAP. However, larger serving sizes may contain higher amounts of fermentable carbohydrates, which can trigger symptoms in individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other digestive disorders.
Therefore, it is important to consume green plantains in moderation and in accordance with your individual tolerance level. It is also recommended to consult with a registered dietitian or healthcare professional before making any major changes to your diet.
