Do bananas lose nutrients when frozen?
If you are freeing your own fresh bananas at home the bananas won’t be losing any nutrients. However, the packaged frozen bananas tend to have less potassium in them because they have been blanched before packaging and freezing to prevent them from browning. As a result, if you are able to freeze your own that would be even better.
How long can you freeze bananas
So, bananas can be frozen in two different ways. Say what? Often times freeze them with the peels on which lasts about 2 months. If they are frozen with peel and cut up into smaller pieces, they can last up till 4 months.
