Listing the benefits of banana to health is almost redundant. Consumed in up to 7 million tons per year in Brazil alone, according to IBGE, the fruit is popular worldwide. In this article, we will see another possibility of commercialization of the product: banana powder, widely used in the food industry.
In addition to the traditional consumption of fresh fruit, the use of banana powder – or even the dried version – has become increasingly common in the industry in several segments, such as food, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
In the food industry, for example, banana powder can be applied as raw material in the manufacture of products such as cakes, cookies, cereal bars, ice cream, desserts, supplements and many others.
A great advantage of using banana powder is its availability in all seasons. To get an idea, Brazilian fruit production reached 14 billion in revenue in the last year, becoming the fourth largest crop in the world.
Not to mention its nutritional qualities of fruit: rich in fiber, which help improve intestinal transit, and potassium, highly recommended to lower blood pressure, in addition to vitamins C, B1, B2 and B6, calcium, iron and folic acid.
Where to buy banana powder?
Like other fruits, the banana powder is part of the portfolio of Blue Macaw Flora, a Brazilian company specialized in the commercialization of natural ingredients of the national flora for the food and beverage industry.
The banana powder is obtained from the dehydrated pulp of the fruit, through the method known as spray drying. It is a process of atomization that maintains the nutritional characteristics of the input, besides preserving the flavor and the aroma.
The entire production process complies strictly with Brazilian and international quality standards, as Blue Macaw also exports the product to several countries, such as the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Korea, among others.
As well as banana powder, all Blue Macaw Flora products are supplied with certificate of analysis, contain no artificial additives, comply with microbiological specifications and are controlled for the presence of specific contaminants.
The products are 100% natural, non-irradiated, free of genetically modified organisms (GMO free) and allergen free, such as gluten and lactose.
In addition to the banana powder, another option available when we think of this fruit are 100% natural dehydrated granulates, which can also be applied to the food industry. They are crunchy dehydrated apple pieces covered with banana powder, widely used in the production of granola, cereal bars, yogurt topping, breads etc. SEE MORE IN THIS ARTICLE HERE.
The banana granulate can also be marketed as snacks, in individual packages, provided in the own brand model. Lean more here.
