Banana Products


Information profile @ a Glance
  • Banana, the fruit of a plant of the genus Musa (family Musaceae) is basically cultivated for food, and secondary for the production of fibers, and also for producing tissue-thin tea bags.
  • Bananas consist mainly of sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose) and fiber, which makes them ideal for an immediate and slightly prolonged source of energy.
  • Banana fiber is used in the production of banana paper. Banana paper is used in two different senses: to refer to a paper made from the bark of the banana plant, mainly used for artistic purposes, or paper made from banana fiber, obtained with an industrialized process from the stem and the non-usable fruits.
  • Antifungal and antibiotic principles are found in the peel and pulp of fully ripe bananas. The antibiotic acts against Mycobacteria. A fungicide in the peel and pulp of green fruits is active against a fungus disease of tomato plants.
  • Bananas for puree production ideally should be harvested at the point of maturity. The puree is used in the beverage industry, baby foods, snack foods, jam and sauces.
  • Banana powder has a great potential for commercialization. It has a high sugar and low starch content and can be used as a substitute for fresh banana in making  traditional cakes or their pre-mixes as well as in the processing of banana snacks, crackers or crisps.
  • Banana flour is completely different from banana powder because it is the product which is obtained after drying and then grinding of the unripe banana.
  • The popularity of snack foods is growing high day by day and potato & banana wafers have emerged as a potential snack food.
  • The demand of handmade paper is increasing day by day in domestic as well as in international market. Several varieties of Banana are cultivated in the country. The plants are cut down as soon as the fruits are harvested for extraction of fiber. Banana fiber has great potentialities for paper making because of its high alpha-cellulose and low lignin content
