Vitamins
Plantain chips are a healthy source of vitamins A and C. The antioxidant function of vitamin C can protect your tissues against damage. Vitamin A has an important effect in low-light vision. These two kinds of vitamins can help keep your skin healthy and reduce the risk of infection for their good effects on immune system.
Minerals
Plantain has adequate minerals such as iron, magnesium, and phosphorous. Magnesium helps strengthen bone and has protective effect on heart. 100 grams of plantain provides 499 mg of potassium. Potassium is an important cellular and humoral component. It helps control the heart rate and blood pressure against the negative impact of sodium.

Fiber
Plantains are high in fiber. Intake of adequate amount of dietary fiber helps normal bowel movements, while deficiency of it can lead to digestive problems such as constipation. Fiber also slows down digestion, which make you feel fuller to avoid more calories intake. It may also help to prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Low Sodium
Plantain chips have a low sodium content. High sodium intake may lead to chronic health issues, including high blood pressure, stroke and kidney damage. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that the daily sodium intake of most people should be no more than 2,300 milligrams and that those having increased heart disease risks should not consume more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day.
