Banana powder is prepared by processing nutrient-rich bananas which are dipped into the warm water and are further peeled, sliced, blanched, mashed, diluted and filtered. The filtered banana juice is then spray dried to obtain the banana powder. The process increases its shelf life, thereby, providing the ease of storage and transportation.
Banana powder is a rich source of minerals, proteins, potassium, antioxidants and dietary fibre. It offers various health benefits such as it maintains heart and eye health, builds strong bones, overcomes depression, prevents kidney cancer, controls blood sugar, treats various intestinal disorders as well as aids digestion.
