How our Banana Power is Processed

Our organically grown flakes and powder are made from ripened red bananas. There is 18 months between plantation and harvest, and in the consistently warm Ecuadorian climate, with its frequent rainfall and fertile soils this allow bananas to grow year round. This means they are harvested on a weekly basis and at no point are these fruit subjected to chemicals or pesticides.

The bananas are carefully transported to a nearby processing plant where the last stages of ripening occur and the outer skin turns to a deep purple. The individual bananas are peeled and the pulp is mechanically chopped and mashed into a puree.
At this stage, the puree is drum-dried; a process that involves applying the banana paste onto two rotating heated drums and allowing the moisture to evaporate over low temperatures. After one rotation, a knife scrapes the drum surface, producing a dried product in the form of thin sheets or banana shavings. This method of drying retains more of the vitamins and minerals than the heat-intensive spray drying process favoured by some suppliers, as well as keeping the banana solid intact and producing a higher fresh fruit yield.

After the banana solid is screened, sterilized and pathogen tested it is milled into a fine powder of 60 mesh. It has an excellent shelf life of 24 months if stored in a cool, dry environment, and are an ideal way to enjoy the delicious taste of ripe red bananas along with the nutritional benefits they have to offer.

Suggested Use: 
Mix 1 - 2 teaspoons with juice, yogurt or add to your favourite smoothie. Use to add flavour and nutrition to any recipe.
