just found these at tesco's in the whole food organic section.
whitworths banana chips.
The label states that it's gluten free, suitable for vegetarians. ingredients: bananas(55%), coconut oil (26%), sugar (18%), flavouring.
Is this ok to eat for raw foodists?

I'm brand new to this life style and sometimes not sure which ones are good and bad

No, these would not be considered raw, however if you dehydrated your own, then they would :)

i see. well, in that case I'd say no to those chips and read some raw books first: Alissas book for example. Enjoy

rawnuts...oh happy you asked. You can look at things and the only way to know (unless it says unheated, uncooked, raw on the label) is to ask the company who made them. Good chance they are not.
If you want to eat these while in transition, then its up to you.

hey thanks for the replies, i have sent an email to them, waiting for response...
I ate a bunch of them, it seemed artificial and loaded with good ol refined sugar poison.

hey yeah you really dont want these. if you make some youreself in a dehydrator or very low temp in the oven (below 118 F) they would be fine, but the crunchy banana chips in the shops are usually fried in oil and coated in sugar. not really what you want to put in your body if youre trying to eat more holistically. the only way i know of to get crunchy banana chips is if you can find freeze-dried ones, which you cant do at home. low temp dried banana is usually chewy. watch out for the added sugar in everything. most of what you get at tesco, unless it is fresh fruit and veg, is probably not raw. things like sunflower seeds you could test for rawness by seeing if they sprout, and of course making sure they dont say "roasted" on the pkg.
